Hello everyone I hope all is well or is getting better. My Mother’s Day weekend was very fulfilling. I was treated to breakfast by my daughter and granddaughter. The fellowship between us was both amazing and enjoyable (talking, laughing, hugging). We had a blast taking selfies with and without the timer. I cherish the simple things in life and enjoying the company of others is one of my favorites.
