Because of her self-less giving and positive influence we bought her a plant! I'll have to get a photo of that at a later date. I'm sure you want to know about this meringue goodie. Well, here is Vanessa's recipe for your enjoyment!

Friday before this our oldest daughter, Jackie, and our grandsons bought me flowers and sent them to my workplace! What a delightful surprise! I felt so truely blessed! What a loving gesture and it started my weekend off quite nicely for sure. This kindness stirred up so many wonderful memories!
It all started with a knocking upon my wookroom door!
The delivery man nearly didn't find me! Here is a close up of the beautiful flowers Jackie ordered. There are roses and daisy's amoung other flowers! Isn't this so incredibly beautiful!!
My mom has been with the Lord for nearly three decades now. That is so hard to believe. The beauty of her example lives on with me. She was a lovely person and wonderful mom. I thought about her on Sunday as I'm prone to do so very often. I try to honor her with my choices and even with the memories I share about her.
Last but not least my hubby made my dinner! I think I will have to write about that recipe in the next blog post...it is a French number and quite delicious! Tune in next time fo the amazing dinner that my husband made for me!!
Wishing you tons of GREAT momories.....
