I love your little cartoons...

I have another to add to your "mother" in different languages however I was very surprised to see it in Frisian also!! Mother in Finnish is "Aiti" with the little dots over the "A".

I wish for you a lovely Mother's Day and weekend.

Such a l♥vely post for Pink Saturday. This is the one day of the week when I get to visit some of the best blogs in cyberspace and indulge my passion for pink.

Happy Mother's Day. I wish you all the peace and joy that a day in celebration of motherhood can bring. You don't have to grow a baby in your womb to be a mother...all you have to do is to l♥ve a human being with compassion and tenderness.
