Thank you, Little Chick. That's lovely. :)

Happy Mother's Day to all of you. I think Mother's Day is about ALL women... regardless of whether we have children of our own. We are the nurturers and the givers of hope. Sometimes I think we are all that holds this tough old world together. I have much love and admiration for all of you. :grouphug:
