Home is ... being with those I love on Mother's Day

We chose to avoid the Sunday rush and celebrate Mother's Day on Saturday. And since I'm pretty much spoiled all year, I chose to eat at Cheddar's. It's a nice place, cheap prices, good food, and close to home.  See how easy I am to please? The daughter (and the boyfriend) blessed me with wonderful gifts.

I missed seeing my beautiful mother on Mother's Day, but she was out of town helping old friends celebrate 50 years of marriage. I had a piece about her in the Beaumont Enterprise (Mom's hometown newspaper) on Sunday, and I know she will love it. Like the typical mother, she's my biggest fan, and I hers.

Me and The Man

The daughter and the boyfriend

 "A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path."
~ Agatha Christie
Me and my homies
I can't imagine life without them, and pray I never have to.
They are truly the wind beneath my wings.

I'm linking up for the first time with Sandy's weekly Home is ... series.

    Great Mother's Day memories being made here! I, too, was treated to lunch for Mother's Day along with many gifts! One of the best gifts, of course, was being with my daughter, SIL and nineteen month old grandbaby girl!
