Yep, I am still breathing...

I can't believe how long it has been since I last blogged.  
So let's get to it!
I think I will do things in reverse order since I am so far behind...

Sunday was Mother's Day - a hard one since this was the first year without my mother.
I didn't even look at Mother's Day cards.
Thankfully, I have two beautiful daughters who brightened my day...

 I received these flowers from Kimberly on Friday, but they hadn't opened up yet.
 Here they are on Sunday.  I love irises because they remind me of my childhood.
My mother always had a fence row of lavender and purple irises.  
My other daughter, Kate, brought me this beautiful, gorgeous orchid.
It is one that can be re-potted and kept.  
(Say prayers that I can keep it healthy.)
Then Kate and I spent a good part of the day together, just doing fun stuff:
breakfast, Starbucks, movie, and church.  
We had a very nice day.  We definitely missed Kimmy.
A really nice Mother's Day - Thank you Kate and Kim!

I know how hard that first Mother's Day is without your mom, Jean! #2 wasn't all that much better... :o\ Glad you had a good time with Kate!
