MOTHERING

QUOTE OF THE DAY:


"The DOG is ever ready to lay down his life for me." --- Konrad Z Lorenz




Mommy here.....today I got a wonderful unexpected surprise at work. A large beautiful flower arrangement with all my favorite flowers. It had a mother's day card on it that said "Thanks Momi Love Mona". I was speechless and didn't know what to say. Of course the tears weren't far behind. I called my sister Pam, she didn't send them. I'm still not sure who acted on Mona's behalf but it has to be somebody who knows me very well because they came from my friend, Jeong's florist shop. He knows what I like but he didn't send them. I think, I now who sent then for Mona but they denied it. It doesn't really matter. They are from my previous little girl who makes my heart sing and means the world to me.


Mona here....I know but I'm not telling!!





When I got home this evening, after showering Mona with kisses and was reading e-mails, I found a video that Judy sent that made me cry and I wanted to share it with all of you. It's perfect seeing that Mother's Day is this weekend.




Also, there was a e-mail from Susanna with DROH about the oldest dog in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Here is the link to her story. She is 21 years old and guess what she's a Dachshund.

Since we still don't have a camera, I asked one of the girls at work too bring her camera tomorrow. I can't wait for you to see what a good job my little girl and her helpers did.




Love Mommy, Sarah.


PS.... and {{{{Huggies}}}} from Mona
