Happy Mothers Day to you also!

I have never worn a carnation on mothers day at all. But at least now I know why the little old ladies in my grandfathers church when I was a kid growing up wore them and why.
Thank you for sharing that little tid bit with us.

Thanks for the interesting facts about Mother's Day. I had a very nice "Mother's Day Weekend" too.
