Blue Monday - Mother's Day Blues

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week.

Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This shot was taken after church when Jenna got her flowers. Sunflowers are her favorite. Strider, my GREAT grandson "told" me to get his mommy some sunflowers for her first Mother's Day. (He said he'd "make it right with me later on.") You can see that Blue-eyed Strider wore a Blue checkered shirt for the special day. There's a Blue streak in Jenna's hair too. The flowers promise to look better with a little sunshine.




After church, Allen, my baby boy and Strider's grandfather, took us to lunch. Thank goodness he wore a Blue shirt so I could share this picture with you.


After lunch, we stopped at Allen's house so that he could give me my gift. Look at these beautiful Blue orchids!


They'll go perfectly in my bathroom! I did get other gifts, but these are the Blue ones.



Happy Blue Monday!

I think I might have had one orchid in a corsage, but never one like yours. I do not recall seeing a blue one either. You look so good Sally. Wish you felt as good as you. Take care.

Janet said...

What a special day you had, and I adore that blue orchid!

Good morning Sally, I can see your Mother's Day was a very special day with your precious great grandson and family. He sure is growing fast and he is such a handsome little guy. I love the photos because everyone is happy and smiling. How wonderful to get out to share a Mother's Day dinner with loved ones. What did you eat?

We had a lovely day with our oldest daughter who surprised us with a visit Saturday evening and stayed for the rest of the weekend. She took us out to dinner for Bill's birthday and Mother's Day. We loved it so much. She lives about 3 hours away.

Happy belated Mother's Day.
Love, Jeanne

Looks like you had a great Mother's Day with your grandson and family; nothing better than grandkids to make you feel not only a mom, but an extended one at that!
You look so pretty sweet Sally. I love your color hair.
I hope I was able to post the pic on the party, I'm having some doubts. I had a blue MD's.
Have a lovely week. and thanks for the BLUE Monday party.
