Happy Mother’s Day

“There is no velvet so soft as a mother’s lap, ?no rose as lovely as her smile, ?no path so flowery as that imprinted with her footsteps.” ~ Archibald Thompson

I miss my mother intensely. My wish is that you will let your mother know how much you appreciate her. If you live in the same city/area, please spend some time with her. You are so fortunate. May you and your mother enjoy a joy-filled Mother’s Day!

Really beautiful, Diane. I love the little tiny dots of bokeh on the tips of the petals. My heart goes out to you on Mother’s Day, I know how difficult it is for you with the loss of your mother. Enjoy the day in your own right, if you can. I called my mom, but she wasn’t at home – will try again later. Hugs to you.

Beautiful picture 🙂

I miss my mom too — I have to admit, I’m always happy and relieved when Mother’s Day is over. For me, this is the most difficult time of the year.
