Mother's Day in May

Hello from Willow's little cottage!  It is May and Friday and almost Mother's Day.  It's also 2020, and life is not normal.  Let's put some normalcy into our week and focus on what we are thankful for daily and weekly.  Here is Willow's Week in FRIDAY FAVE FIVES (the link for you to join us).

1.  It has been really hot (for us) this week!  I am thankful for air conditioning!

2.  What we see on our walks.  This week, we walked in the back part of the (closed) neighborhood golf course.  That's where we see deer and bunnies and geese.  Sometimes, we see birds like hawks, owls, quail, and egrets.  And road runners!  The picture isn't great, but Road Runner took off with his crest and tail feathers sticking up.  We don't often get to see the road runners, so that was fun.


3.  My favorite time of day is sunset.  I love the painted skies!


4.  I also love watching the moon rise above the mountain ridge behind our house.


5.  Did you notice that three of the four Faves are about nature?  I love God's creation.  He was the first landscape architect and shares His beauty with us.  My mother was the first person to constantly share her love of nature around us, and I carry that in my earliest memories.  "Oh, look!  The mountain is beautiful today!"  "See the beautiful forest?  There are fir trees and ferns and flowers!"  "Oh!  The ocean is so blue today!"  I'm thankful that my mom instilled her love of nature in me.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOMS!

My parents were like your mom. I remember them always being aware of and commenting on the beauty around us. I, too, attribute much of my love of creation to them. The picture of your mom is lovely. I have a few memories of her cheerfulness and love of life. Mary

Lovely nature pictures. I love seeing the silhouette of a palm tree in the sunset. I often miss living in California. Such good memories. Such nice people! You were blessed with a wonderful, beautiful mom. I know that you are that kind of mom as well. Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

I get my love for the mountains and woods from my daddy but my mama gave me a love for birds. She just loved watching the robins in spring from her back porch. How i miss talking to her about them.

Your mom was beautiful!!

Happy Mother's Day!!

We've had some hot days, too, though it got down in the 30s again last night. But I am thankful we can easily adjust with heat or AC. Beautiful pictures! I love seeing God's handiwork. What a sweet picture of your mom. Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! My dad instilled the love of nature in me, we are blessed to have had parents that cared and took the time to show us nature. Stay well and safe.

I hesitate to say it, but I’m a little envious of your hot weather. It’s been unseasonably cold here and I grow weary of it. How fun to see a road-runner. I thought they only ran from coyotes.

I love nature and God's creation too. This time has really brought that focus back for me in a more rich way. We've had some lovely warm days but we've also had some really cool ones. It's kind of whiplash weather for us right now. Love that sunset!
