Happy Mother’s Day, 2017


Dearest Readers:

Today is Sunday, May 14, 2017. A beautiful sunshiny day in Charleston, SC. Yesterday it rained torrential rains in the city. Today, the scent of fresh air, gardenias, Carolina Jasmine and other aromatic smells are everywhere. How I love the fresh crispness of a new day after a rain storm.

I would like to wish all the mother’s around the USA a joyous and Happy Mother’s Day. I hope your family will treat you with love and respect today while showering you with gratitude.

I have no idea if I will hear from my son on this day. Sometimes he phones…most times, he does not. If he calls, it will probably be later in the day, actually in the evening. Perhaps a voice mail will be left. Regardless, I have plans for today, so I will not sit by the phone. You are probably thinking he must live long distance. Actually, he lives in North Charleston. Less than 20 miles away. He will use the excuse of forgetting, or ‘he was busy’ – who knows…

So, mother’s of children, four-legged friends and family, may your Mother’s Day be wonderful. Wishing you all the best. I shall enjoy the frumpy, frolicking of my precious four-legged family members. No doubt Sir Hank, Prince Midnight Shadow, Sir Sandy Bear Sebastian, and little Toby will shower me with little kisses, toys for us to play with and lots of cuddle time. Sir Shakespeare Hemingway and precious Prince Marmaduke Shamus  shall be close, and missed buddies I will miss today on Mother’s Day!

How I miss those precious boys and I still burst into tears wishing I could hold them close — just one more time!
