  1. Great list, many I could tick for my mum to:)

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. It was a last minute effort since my computer is down and I had to post from my husband's. :-)

  2. Sounds like you have a wonderful mother! I hope she had a great day. I think about all of those would apply to my mom too. :-)
    Enjoy your week!

    1. I am very thankful for my mom. She had a pretty good day, I must say. My sister and her family moved here last week, so she now has grandchildren here. :-D

  3. I love this list. I am going to print it out and keep it, if that's OK. It really touched me. Thanks for posting it.

    1. Yes, that's OK. I'm glad you like it.
