Happy Mother's Day

I hope everyone out there is having a great day!  Of course, that includes all you Moms.  The Pastor included all kinds of women in her comments today.  Basically she included all those who take care of things.  I'm thinking of all the women who might not have children but care for them in many ways like teachers, day-care workers and the like.  I'm especially thinking of my DD and my DIL.  Laurie works with children in school and she had a home day care for many years.  Debbie is the Mom of my Grandson , Caleb , and she will be having our Granddaughter, Hannah, under fairly difficult conditions.  My hats off to them both! This post is also in loving memory of my Mom, Merna Kennedy Pike and my Grandmothers, Edith Rose Pike and Anna Lindquist  Kennedy.


 This is a BBD design I did a few years ago to honor Mom and her Mother.

 I put their birth dates under their names.

Both were born in Joliet, Illinois.  My DD and I were also born in Joliet.

 Edith Rose Pike, my Dad's Mom.

Anna Lindquist Kennedy,  Mom's Mom. I love and think about all of you today!
Thanks so much for joining me and have a wonderful week!
