Sandy and I would like to wish all of you who are moms and grandmothers a very Happy Mother's Day. Our's will be very quiet I believe.  Sandy's daughter lives half way across the country from her ... and in our family our youngest grandchild has her graduation party on Saturday.  I think we'll spend Mother's Day resting!

For those of you who are not yet grandmothers, I have to tell you that your children are going to get just a teeny tiny (VERY teeny tiny) nudge to the back of the line once they give you grandchildren :+)  We have two who live in the same city we do, and one who lives not far away.  The not far away one graduated from college two weeks ago!  How proud we are of her.  The two who live here in the city .... the oldest graduated last year, and has finished his first year of college. Now little sister is  graduating this year.  She decided when she went into 9th grade that she WOULD graduate in three years.  She has always been stubborn and when she says she will do something, she DOES it.  She was a three year cheerleader, played volleyball for two years, and still managed to graduate in three years.  Her party is Saturday and then graduation is a week from Saturday.  (I don't question why they do it backwards ... I just go :+) SO this year I gladly don't mind graduation shadowing Mother's Day! And hubby is making 25 pounds of potato salad for the party, as he did last year, and he very sternly told our daughter "this is the LAST time .. if you have parties for college graduation YOU make the potato salad or you don't have any".

SOOO this is a very happy week for us.  Sandy knows she'll be getting a phone call and long talk with her daughter (and no doubt gifts) ... and we'll be surrounded by family.  Who says Christmas is "the most beautiful time of the year"??? :+)

Happy Mother's Day!
