Sharing is Caring - Mother's Day (Blog Hop)

No you didn't miss it. Mother's Day has not come and gone but is quickly approaching.
Do you have a list of things you would like? Does your family go out to eat or celebrate in a special way?
When I was growing up we always went to church with my grandmother on Mother's Day, she wore a Mother's Day corsage and we ate at the church grounds. IF we did not eat there, we went to our favorite seafood place. It was a day of family, fun, food and celebrating. I don't remember gifts being given except for flowers. My grandmother loved flowers, so each of her girls gave her a potted plant that would be placed in the yard later.
My mother, like her mother, loves flowers. I rarely am home for Mother's Day and we usually eat out. My boys almost always made me a handmade card, which I adored. 
Here is my grandmother in 1970 wearing a corsage, it was taken either Mother's Day or Easter and I'm not sure.
This is my mom, 2011, she is inspecting the collage photo of me and her grandkids I made for her. She loved it. FINALLY a gift she likes! She loved the strawberries and cookies as well.



**Please, tell your mother you love her. Show her with hugs, kisses and time spent together. My grandmother passed away last March and she is missed greatly.**
Mother's Day we always have great desserts. My mom, like me, loves desserts.She used to make this wonderful recipe and I have enjoying fixing it for family and friends as well.
A great no bake cool dessert. Hope you enjoy it and that you will take time to LOVE your mom, even if you don't like her. God chose her to have you, my mom and I have not always gotten along and there was a time when we did not see or speak to each other, but she is the only mom I have and I love her.
Enjoy your day, your mom and a great dessert!

  2. Your family sounds like mine - we always gave my Mom roses for Mother's Day. She still loves to dig in the dirt and sometimes I will have roses shipped to her!

    Thanks for sharing your story and this wonderful recipe!

  6. My Grandma loved Carnations. I remember my Papaw(grandfather)would take all 4 of us grandchildren to get her some. It was a great surprise(she knew every year) that we would hold them each of different colors behind our backs and march in one by one to give them to her and him with a vase and water in hand to hold them in. I love how tickled she would get to just have them from us. Beloved and treasured memories from my childhood. I have lived away from home for 12 yrs, but moving back soon. I plan on spending many quality Mother's Days to come!

  7. My Mother and I were best friends. I miss her terribly. I wish I could hug her and tell her Happy Mother's Day.

    You are so right. You need to hold tight onto the ones that you love. Things are meaningless.

    Awesome recipe! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Happy Mothers Day to you! (early)

    1. I'm sorry. I lost my grandmother last March and it has been very hard on my mother. I thank God that my mom is in great health but do not take it for granted, because we never know.

  11. Moms can be very hard to please as they've got higher standards for their kids and expect us to fulfill them :)
