Blessings come to us in many ways. Today, on the eve of Mother's Day, I was blessed with a joyful visit from blogging friends, Sherry from Eddie Marie's Attic, her daughter in law Chris and Linda from Linda's Bluegate Blog. In several posts back, I shared the trip Sherry and Chris were to take for a two week venture. Today they arrived via Amtrak and Linda picked them up before coming to my house for a fun visit.

Our time together was very special, but of course, was over way to fast. We talked and laughed and visited over lunch while dear hubby waited on us with ice tea and lemonade. He is such a gem, helping to host, so I could visit with my lovely friends who are beautiful ladies inside and out.

Beazy gave her WELCOME WAGGIN Greeting~~ and made clear she was one of the girls.

We shared a little somethin,somethin gifts!

Sherry and Chris brought me a awesome jeans tote bag made by Sherry. I love it. It has great pockets for sunglasses, cellphone and keys along with a fully lined inside made from shirt fabric. The closure hook is a gorgeous dragon fly pin. Being a purseaholic, I fell instantly in love with this bag made by talented and creative Sherry.

Miss Beazy was thrilled with her gift of a darling scarf also made by Sherry. The fabric has little bees (perfect for Beazy) and apples, since she is the apple of my eye.

Best wishes to everyone for a special Mother's Day 2009. I will spend my day with my wonderful son and dear hubby. We will be in church, and then I was told, the guys will take me to dinner. I always love the time I spend with my sweet family and thankful for the blessings of being a mom. Whatever your day holds, may you find the joy and love being with family and friends.
