First of all though, I paid tribute to my wonderful mother, EDITH BALLARD BANKS (1900-1991). Over the weekend, in celebration of Mother's Day, I remembered my "Mama"... Even though she has been gone for 25 years now, I still miss her SO much. I never thanked her enough for being the best Mom in the world to me. She was such a gracious Christian lady---and I only hope that she is looking down from heaven on her daughter knowing how much I love and miss her and appreciate her for all she gave to me. Thanks, Mom for YOU! (Photo taken in 1982)
Hope all of you had an awesome weekend also... I am one very blessed woman!!!! Thanks be to God!

SO--what did we do to celebrate?????? WELL---we did something we had never done on Valentine's Day before: we went to a local Mexican Restaurant near us here and had Fajitas for TWO. Even though it wasn't 'fancy' --and we didn't dress up for a special occasion, the food was GREAT. We both enjoyed it ---and after getting home, we enjoyed cuddling on the sofa by the fireplace --watching the snow come down (and being happy we were HOME).
Adult children may not always realize how special it is for a parent to hear from them. This Mama CRIED with so much love and joy inside of herself. Mark and Debbie will NEVER know how much this gesture of love means to me....
Well Friends---as you can tell, even though it wasn't what we first expected, we did have a wonderful weekend... As my Facebook friends tell me, just being with George is enough for me!!!!!! SO TRUE..
God Bless You ---and remember to keep the LOVE going all year long.
