A Wonderful Gift

This past Mother's Day was a little rough for me as that was the long weekend that my husband drove my oldest daughter Jess out to Southern California to start a new job. My youngest daughter Jenny saved the day by bringing me flowers and taking me out for dinner.

This past weekend, Jess came back to attend her sister's high school graduation and gave me a painting (that she painted)for my Mother's Day gift.

Isn't it beautiful?

Here's a closeup of some of the detail...

This is what she wrote on the back...
Isn't that sweet?

Now, all I have to do is find a great place to display it!

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
