Garden Clog Lunch

Thank you so much for all of the prayers and good thoughts for both my Mom and
for me.  Your prayers worked miracles.  Although we were close to losing her, the
team of doctors and nurses on her case were able to pull her through.  She is
back home now, is recovering and is gaining back her strength.  It was a very
frightening experience and the lesson learned is to consider each and every
day a gift and not to waste a moment of this precious life.

I have missed posting and am happy to show you my spring garden clog luncheon
table.  I got the idea while working out in my garden wearing my clogs.
I love them.  I can get them dirty and rinse them off with the hose.  I have been
carving out a bit of time here and there to get my hands dirty.  It is so 
therapeutic and fun!

I see that blogger has changed the posting format again, so I hope that this
post comes out without a hitch.  Isn't it amazing what happens in the blog world
when one is absent for just one week?

Thank you again for all of your kind words because they gave me strength and
encouragement to face each day.  I hope to be back on track now and posting and
visiting all of you.  

I am linking up to

Bentley ~ you are glad that your grandma is home from the hospital too.

  18. REALLY glad to hear that your Mother is doing better and that your mind & body can now take a much needed break in your garden. My parents are both "up there" in age, and we have been very fortunate & blessed that they both have good physical health. I just can't even begin to imagine what you and your family have had to endure. I hope for the very best for your Mother's continued recovery and wellness. Meanwhile, your garden clog tablescape is both clever and pretty. The quilt cloth is one of my favorite features. Everything looks so pretty and relaxing...something I'm sure you really need right about now! Have a good weekend!

  19. Delighted to hear the good news about your mom!!! Darling table.. love the dishes and the colors.. xo marlis

  20. So happy to hear that your Mom is doing so well. Love your fun tablescape!

  21. What a pretty spring tablescape! I smiled when I saw your jar with daisies in your header. I have that on my kitchen counter right now.

  22. Oh, Susan...I'm so glad your mom is better. And I agree, we must value each and every day!

    Your tablescape is lovely. I think the garden theme is charming. ;)
