Thanks, Mom!

Happy Mother's Day! Especially to commemorate the occasion I am wearing this "time to say thank you" Swatch today. When we lived in Europe, twenty-plus years ago, I used to love to shop in the Swatch store there, they always had fun watches and I remember sending two of these watches back to the United States, one for my mother and one for my mother-in-law. I found this one, that had belonged to my MIL, a few years ago when were cleaning out. It is precious to me on many levels. The watchband is emblazoned with "thank you, mother" in many different languages.
My mother and me, a few years ago; at Quilted Threads in Henniker, NH. I am extremely thankful to have a mother who's always ready to ride along and indulge me in my "need" to visit every quilt shop in a multi-state region when I come up north to visit. She's just like that; for her sense of adventure and SO MUCH MORE, thanks, Mom!
The Bluebirds are developing, growing feathers and increasing in size by the moment~ thanks to the excellent care of their super-attentive and ever-vigilant birdie-Mom!
No matter who you're with today, your mother or a mother figure in your life. 
Remember to give them a big hug and thank them; they'll appreciate it more than you can know!
Thanks, Mom!

Life is Good!
