{ A Mother's Day Gift }

I'd like to wish all of my readers a very
~ Happy Mother's Day ~
I value each and every one of you,
and think of this blog as my small gift to you...
if I can make you smile, cry or laugh out loud ~
remind you take notice of the small, everyday minutia that makes up our daily lives...
if I can share with you some of my feelings and values,
and help you to understand who I am & what propels me ~
and in return receive your gift of friendship & fellowship...
then I am the one who is truly blessed.
so here is today's gift to you...pretty pictures:
tiny Minew sitting on the shop porch in the morning sun ~

she sends her Mother's Day wishes to you all ~

this is where we think Minew has been living...under the shop porch!

her little 'front door' is flanked by sweet Lily of the Valley

how very lucky to live in a garden....
how very lucky we are that she found us.

Minew was absolutely meant to be with you. We think there are wonderful fur angels that come into our lives to bring us comfort and love.

Happy Mother's DAy! And just as you became a new mother once again. Minew is so sweet . . and a very lucky little kitten. You and Peter are such a gift to creatures everywhere . . . I so wish the whole world was as tender hearted!
Your iris are beautiful . . . ours are a bit behind this year . . . they have been shy . . . and a frost warning to boot tonite!
