It rained most every day this past week.

 It seemed like endless rain.

So, I bought this cute pack of flower picks at my local Marshall's Store.

I baked delicious orange crunch muffins.

And, I put the two of them together, and made a special Mother's Day gift for someone.

Then, yesterday the sun came out, and it was a gorgeous day!  The landscape seemed to come alive.
All that rain, and then the sun.  I cannot take in all the beauty that I see everywhere.

Today, I am so thankful for these three special blessings in my life.  This picture is many years
old, but when I saw it yesterday, I could not help but share it with you.  My three precious
daughters, who continue to bring me so much joy and adventure:).

It was a quiet lunch time for my husband and me.  To celebrate Mother's Day, in our simple
fashion, we splurged on one of our new favorite desserts.

"Raspberry Cheesecake Gelato" by Breyers.  It states on the container that it is, cheesecake gelato
with a luscious raspberry sauce and gourmet graham crumble. 

I can't express to you how delicious this is!  Generally, I am not a huge gelato fan, but this new
product is amazing!  And, just in case you wish to try it, and don't care for this flavor, there  is
also "chocolate hazelnut" and "tiramisu".

A perfect Mother's Day treat for us.  The sun is shining.  So much to be thankful for today,
despite the fact that I really miss my Mother.  First year in 62 years, that I did not get to wish
her a "Happy Mother's Day"!  I know for a fact, that many of you are in the same shoes today.
Maybe a dish of raspberry cheesecake gelato will help:).

Thank you, dear Mother, for a lifetime of memories that you gave to me.  I thank God for those
memories today.

And, I want to thank each of you for stopping by.

Beautiful photos throughout your post, but the one of you and your mother is so special. I know this must have been a bittersweet Mother's Day for you, Judy. My heart goes out to you.
Your garden seems to have benefited from all of the rain. Everything looks so pretty and healthy.
The muffins look yummy and I like the little something you added to them.

I was thinking about you this Mother's Day.
I know your mother was such an inspiration to you and your daughters. It is heart warming to see her gifts passed down.

Made me sad to read and know that one day I'll be in your shoes. Oh the precious cycle of life!
