As I have said a million times she is the BEST. She has been through Breast Cancer TWICE (once at 43 and again at 63) and she never complained once. She has some other illnesses that might keep others down but she keeps going on. When my father died 2 years ago (they were grade school sweethearts and had been together since the 5th grade) and I thought maybe she might not make it but she pulled herself up and she is just my INSPIRATION. I hope everyone has someone in their lives that motivates you to be a better person (it doesn't have to be a mother, could be a friend, a relative, or anyone). I know my mom is that person for me! I love you MOM!
Anyway after we had a little time together My mother in law came over and we had a lovely brunch. I decided not to cook but to get brunch ordered in from a local restaurant. I have never done that before. I always enjoy cooking; however, with being gone for most of the day on Saturday I just didn't want to be in the kitchen all morning long. I wanted to relax. I have to say it was perfect. Everyone had a fantastic time. After everyone left and Michael went down for a nap, hubby and Jack went downstairs to watch Star Wars and I stayed in the family room and cuddled up on the couch with my blanket and my remote control and watch 2 episodes of my "bad" t.v. (Bethany ever after). I had a blast and I loved every minute of it. Tomorrow I will share the rest of the my mother's day because we all had a blast.
On to my layout of the day.
The Perfect Storm
We had the worst ice storm this past winter and I went out to take a couple of pictures of the ice collecting on the tree branches. I was also trying out some different features on my camera and I loved how the pictures turned out.

I hope everyone has a great day today! We have a chance of rain but the temperatures are finally starting to warm up!
I will be back tomorrow with my Wednesday Card. Thanks for stopping by! See ya then!
