Joy of Thankfulness

Yesterday was Mother's Day.  I'm so thankful for my husband and children who made it a wonderful day.  Starting with...

Hot cups of herbal tea in bed, accompanied by a pile of handmade cards.  Three from Mr J, with drawings of penguins and sabre-toothed tigers, and one signed in his handwriting: "Love from Mr J, Righty, Lefty, Coo, and Dan."

Daffodils like sunshine and a colourful meal of favourite foods.

Creativity of Daddy and children; their "treasure hunt to the chocolate" was so much fun! [I shared out the miniature bars right after this much to everyone's delight]

In the UK, Mother's Day is traditionally observed on the fourth Sunday of Lent.  Around the world, it's celebrated on varying dates, according to Wikipedia.  

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought,
and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder."
-G K Chesterton
