Happy Mother's Day

Even though I am only mother to Connor-pup, all of the older men and women in my neighbourhood wish me a Happy Mother's Day, probably thinking that I should have children by now!

My mother's been amazing since my father died two years ago. She's taking college classes, playing bridge with old and new friends, gardening and doing a lot of socializing. I am so proud of her and love her so much.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

  2. Have you read "The Art of Racing in the Rain?" It's written by a dog and one of the most wonderful parts is his great lament he cannot speak. I'm sure Connor would speak loudly to wish you a Happy Mother's Day if he only could. Love the new header.

  5. I love the picture of your mother. She's beautiful and it's good she's finding things to fill the massive hole left by your father. I like the sound of him too! Great to see he served in the Royal Navy in the war and was basically a Brit! I have strong associations with our navy myself..
