  1. Suzanne- This post brought tears to my eyes. I hope someday my girls think about me as kindly as you do about your Mom. What a loving, generous woman she is...no wonder you have turned out to be the sweet, lovely person you are. She is a beautiful lady! xo Diana

  2. What a sweet post! A big Happy Birthday to your Mom! Hugs, Linda

  3. Hey Sis...you said it so well about Mom and yes we do all appreciate her so much more! Mom and I had a great time together today and yet as we were going to lunch she wanted to go the scenic way and we both had a lump in our throat as the last time we were on that road was during the many times we went to see Dad in the hospital....but we still made it a good day! It was a record breaking day for heat in Mi today and the sunrise was spectacular! Thanks for putting into words what all of us feel!


  4. Suzanne, what an incredible message of your Mom. She's very beautiful! I wish my Mom lived close to me...she's several hundred miles away. Your blessed with a wonderful family. Tell her happy birthday.

  5. Oh what a beautiful post and what a beautiful Mom! Happy Birthday to your beautiful Mom. She loved my favorite ice cream too! She did a wonderful job to have such a sweet daughter as you! Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Terri

  6. How sweet is your post about your mother. My relationship with m own mom isn't the best. So glad to see that some are the real thing.
    Love the Easter bonnets.

  7. Wonderful, touching post. So enjoyed it...I feel like I know your mom. My mom is awesome as well and has many of the same traits. Jamocha Almond Fudge is my very favorite ice cream of all time. Just stopped by my local BR last week when we had 80 degrees in Michigan in March! Thanks for such a fun post!


So, what do ya think? Do tell...I'd love to hear it:) Be Happy...
