Happy Mother's Day

bushes outside my kitchen window

Sweet Mother's Day wishes to all of you mom's out there!

And to all of you 'special' moms of disabled and critically ill children, an extra special
Mother's Day wish to you!  You work harder, cry longer, pray harder, wish bigger, sleep less, and sacrifice more.  You have deeper heartaches, and bigger celebrations over smaller things.  Everything is an extreme and magnified when  your child is disabled in some way.
I'm praying that God would bless you in a special way today.
And to all of you special dads, who act as the mom...you are not forgotten, either!
Big hugs and kisses to all of you.
I hope you have a wonderful day.

  10. You know
    Maybe tomorrow
    You're five men with show
    Another cat decided to grow
    Adding to your shore
    What's one more?..LMAO
    Should get tons from all the kitties too
    As they'd all be humpty humping if it weren't for you
    And well that might seem fun
    They'd find a whole lot more cats under their sun
    So you saved them all
    And should have presents littering your hall
    Not it a bad brown way
    Hmmm this is going sideways, have a nice day..hahaha

    1. What's one more?
      Well, that's for sure.
      I really wouldn't care
      with one more at my lair.
      Yes, they should all be thankful
      and very grateful
      that I've cared for them so.
      Bringing presents would be the way to go!
      hahaha.

    2. Let's hope it's not birds
      That would leave one lost for words
      And not in a good way
      But the cats would think it was a nice display..haha
