Special Mother's Day/Blue Monday

Blue Monday,, today is a little different from my usual.  Trust Sally and all her blue Monday friends had a wonderful Mother's Day. I have never had a bad mother's day, but this one wins the blue ribbon.  My son and daughter-in-law came and took me to a fish place we really enjoy.  That was great, but gift very original and appreciated.

Of all the mother's days in my life, never received this:
I do not cook much anymore, buy my daughter-in-law does and enjoys it.  She prepared these various small portions of food for me.  All frozen, ready to heat and eat.
To top it off, these are cupcakes I dearly love. Prepared six individually packaged for dessert. I never in my wildest dream would image ever getting anything such as this.  It certainly meant a lot to me that she spent so much time and work. Better than a store bought gift.  Anything someone takes the time to personally make, means so much more.

The closing of a perfect mother's day, was time spent with my great grandson, Layton.

I love the picture of you and Layton! Wow, she went all out. Gave you so much more than just going to the store and buying something. Days and days worth of homemade meals and desserts, such a wonderful gift!

What a thoughtful gift. That must be so creative and so appreciated. I would love it as I really don't like to cook anymore.

That is my kind of gift as well. I think as we get older, no wait a minute, I meant get better, we appreciate more simple things of life. It's not all about stuff!!

Hi La Voice,

Yep, you hit the vein of gold when you got that daughter-in-law. What a gem she is!

And a visit from Layton too? Wow, you were living high! Isn’t it fun finding blues to share? Thanks for playing today.

Happy Blue Monday!

That is one SPECIAL daughter-in-law, probably the most thoughtful gift I can remember anyone doing. Layton is getting so tall and really handsome.
