Just For You

It's Saturday and my 'guys' are taking me out to dinner - yay!!!  My hubby, and two sons are simply the BEST : )  We plan to go to Olive Garden... yum!  I'm pretty sure the last time the four of us went there, it was ON Mother's Day.  We had to wait a zillion hours before we were seated, so I hesitated about suggesting Olive Garden when my DH asked where I'd like to go tonight.  Ya know what?  I think one of the blessings of his being out of work is that he has more time.  Duh!  But really, he was completely OK with the thought of waiting (shock!).  Blessings are all around us.  Are we gonna look for them?  I want to be one who sees the bright side of things.  You know what they say... when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!  See?  I bet you feel better already! Hee hee...


This is another little cutie from Paper Romance.  
Her name is Little Missy and you can find her Here.

She's sending you her best bouquet of flowers... just in time for Mother's Day!  Or for those of you who've already celebrated Mother's Day, this is 'Just For You' because you are special and I love you :)
