Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers of the World
My first camellia flowered for all the Mums today.
This is Granny writing. I want to say how privileged I have been to have a wonderful mother. It is not until we are adults that we realise that every one does not have wonderful Mothers. My darling Mum is not with us any more. Our home was always open to any one. The kettle was always on, ready for a cup of tea, the biscuit and Rock Bun tin was always full.
Our tears were wiped away with her apron,. The kitchen table was used to sit on when we fell off our bikes, and a band aid needed to be applied. When it was very cold our P.J's were warmed on the door of the wood stove.We always had good food to fill our bellies, and a warm bed to sleep in. Love was given freely all the time to fill our hearts.
Thank You Mum.
We had a double celebration last night. My Grand sons 13th Birthday and my celebration was for my two daughters and daughter inlaw being wonderful mothers.
We had a lovely night.
This was the Birthday cake before the candles were put on.
"OK That enough from you Granny I want to tell everyone what we did today".
A delivery man came to the door with beautiful flowers for Granny, from her son and daughter inlaw. Yesterday she was very spoilt with perfume. and a warm jacket.
I went out into the garden and picket these flowers for Granny because she is like my mother and I do love her.
Then we picked some more and went up to the cemetery where Granny's Mum and Dad are resting.
It has beautiful gardens.
I asked Granny is I could catch the Gold Fish in this pond. She said NO. That is not the thing to do in cemeteries
Then I saw this lovely old tree with great bark. I wanted to climb it You know what was said:"NO!!! we need to learn respect Wilbur."
This is Granny's mother and Fathers grave.
Love you Mum.
