A Mother's Memories

Mother's Day this year will always be a memorable one for me because the gifts given to me were very loving and personal. Both of my girls marked the occasion with time spent away with me and I will never forget the memories we made together. While in California last month, one daughter took me to the Flower Fields in Carlsbad and a fancy lunch by the ocean.

This last weekend, I spent a day in the mountain town of Jerome, AZ with my other daughter. We attended the Historical Building Tour featuring buildings and Victorian homes built back in the 1800's. Some of the homes we toured were renovated and now are occupied. We enjoyed lunch at the old Jerome Hotel with ornate gold glass door elevators. I couldn't decide which photos to post of our day so I made a slideshow! Enjoy the Old West back in the 1800's to the present!


  1. Beautiful memories you are making with your gorgeous girls!
    Blessings, hugs, and prayers,

  10. Hi Mary,

    What a beautiful blessing you have received! Having daughters is wonderful in itself, but to have these wonderful memories to share is precious. I also read your last post, about deleting your post while feeling down. I have also considered it during the last couple of months...but just as you received another wonderful blessing from blogging friends, so it is with me when I look at the comments left, and to know that other people go through the same trials and challenges I do...we need that connection...we need each other.

    I know Debbie from blogland, and just love her...hope to meet her some day when we travel to Az. to visit family. I take it you live in AZ as well? There are so many of you great gals in Az., I'm jealous!

    Blessings to you, Mary...have a wonderful week!


  11. Mary, what a fun mother-daughter time you had!

    It's been too long since I've been to Jerome. It looks lovely!

    I'm so glad you shared lots of pictures. I enjoyed each one.

    I already miss you! I had such fun with you and Kathleen last week. We must do it again. I continue to pray.

    Love you,

  12. Beautiful! I love your pile of smiles..I'm always smiling when I come and visit! :)

  13. How lovely to spend time with your daughters! Looks like you had a marvelous time! I enjoyed all your beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing them. :)

  14. How beautiful. I loved looking at your pics! Your girls are beautiful, too... what great memories!

    Thanks for visiting saved by grace... it's so nice to meet you!


  15. Well how cool is that, we went to Jerome too, on that last visit! It was my second time there. We didn't do the Jerome hotel though, we'll have to do that next time. Did you take the ghost mine tour? It was only $5, and it was so cool!

  16. Mary, God is so good!!! You will always treasure the special time you spent with your daughters!

    I love the slide show! And I agree with Mari. You look so beautiful and happy!

    Much love,
