The Greatest of These – Thankful Thursday

1 gorgeous spring day in the south...

spring day
2 hours after noon time... in the middle of the work week... just because...

2 oclock
3 grandmothers, watching life speed by in a blur..

race
4 mothers sharing stories, laughter, and reflections...

5 daughters giving thanks for their mothers...

6 garlic breadsticks in a basket...where the salad and breadsticks never stop...

bread sticks
7 hot Italian donuts with dark melted chocolate...their calories cancelled in celebration of Mother’s Day...

8 hands breaking bread...healing hands that have mended broken hearts...


9 months of weeks spent waiting for grand and great-grand #5...

10 arms, hugging sweet...knowing what really matters in this life...

The greatest of these...

Today and every day I am thankful for my precious mother and all the other mothers in my life...those who bore children from their wombs...and those who bore them from their hearts...

May all of you have a blessed Mother’s Day!

Beautiful blessings Karen and CONGRATS I think by now for #9!

Beautiful photos! My favorite one #5!
Such precious faces! Such beautiful women of God and grand daughter!!! I love generational photos! Though each photo was really well presented but I'm curious about why you numbered 1-10... and I've never had any of #7 but they sure sound delicious! Yet the one that captures all of the previous ones and embraces your heart and the greatest of these LOVES: #10!!!

Hugs for YOU (((Karen))) and the love of God through your family as we honor all mothers...so beautifully worded as always!

No, just call of any of my love gifts but I'm blessed anyways, thanks for your sweet thought that you sent me as regards my 2! My heart no longer aches for our distance just theirs from Our Lord!

Praying all is well for all these moms and they enJOY a GREAT Mother's Day and time with family!
And for a perfect arrival of RUBY FAITH...how JOYFUL and precious, perhaps this is why I waited until this day! To rejoice and let you know I'm with you and her safe arrival!!! Let us know! God bless!

Love, peace and JOY,
Peggy
