I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

Beautiful song tribute for all moms, Ramona! I hope you had an extraordinary M-Day yourself! Now, I’m off to visit some of your featured bloggers. Have a tunetastic week!

    Bette Midler is a favorite of mine for a long time. Great song choice for a tribute to your Mom, and very impressive and so was your Mom wow she did a time in the Marines. She must’ve been a very strong woman. What an idol to look up too. You have every right to be very proud my friend. Hugs… also felt pinwheels I’ve never heard of those. I buy pinwheels all the time to put on my daughter’s gravesite. I bet the felt ones would last a lot longer. Gonna have to look around for those. Have a rockin’ week dear friend, and I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s day & to all your mama kitties too! ~hehehe~

  15. TwoPlusCute says:
