Happy Mother's Day

All the paintings in this post were painted by my mother.

The painting below is my mother as a young child with her Grandfather. They were going to hunt for gold.

This book was one of my gifts for Mother's Day. I am going to spend many hours reading those pages.

I hope all the mother's reading this post are having a wonderful Mother's Day.

I would like to send special wishes to those who have lost their mother.

Especially my heart goes out to any mothers who have lost a child.

Today every child - made luke warm cup of tea and burnt toast is as good as a 5 star meal.
