Happy Mother's Day!

The photo below is of my Mom celebrating her 85 birthday last July. We'll be enjoying the day together tomorrow, along with my daughter. I hope everyone has a very happy Mother's day!

The loveliest


Of the heart of God

Is the heart

Of a Mother.

I love St. Therese of Lisieux and have a large statue of her in my kitchen window. :)

Hi Pat,
A bit late, pls accept my sincere thanks for your nice comment left on my page.
As far as cobblestones, I like them, and a good thing I almost never wear my stilletoes, LOL:)
By the way, the cobblestone roads surrounding the area particularly Southstreet, near Manhattan, the shopping along those cobblestoned roads, everywhere I love NYC, the world city never sleeps like Istanbul. Thanks that I enjoy a lot when reding your blog, and your photos, too.
Oh btw, I'd LOVE to see your photos taken in your pavements, if you can do it, share your experience with us, Pat.
Wish you the Happiest of Happy Mother's Day.

Lots of love,

What a beautiful mom you have! Happy Mother's Day!
