Happy Mother's Day . . and a little give-a-way!




Happy mother's day to everyone!
Whether you are a foster, adoptive, stand-in, father/mother or mother to
a furry or feathered child, you are all special!
My blessings are many today,
I still have my mother, who will be 89 years young next month!
I am mother to Eddie, step mother to Elena and Alex,
and furry mom to Lacy Lu!
I am a happy girl!

Today is also my birthday!
There is nothing I need except a little sunshine to work in the garden.
So . . . .
Instead of "getting" on this day, I have started a tradition of
"giving" . . . . in the form of a yearly blog give-a-way.
Just leave a comment here on my blog by Tuesday evening
and one of you will be drawn to receive a robin pin keep
as a gift!

Have a lovely Mother's Day!
May the sun shine on your parade!!

Lori Ann
