Graduate, Nashville, Mother's Day

Last weekend we celebrated DD's college graduation.
It involved a trip north along with a simple little party with family and friends, then moving her and her belongings down to Tennessee. While we were gone, Middle Tennessee experienced some outrageous weather. As you may have heard Nashville as well as many surrounding counties endured 13+ inches of rain last Saturday and Sunday which resulted in severe flooding and even loss of life.
We were blessed in that high water was nowhere near our home and we only experienced minor soil erosion on our hill. I am happy to say that in most areas the rivers are back below flood stage and cleanup efforts are underway. Unfortunately, several landmarks as well as many, many neighborhoods and homes were under 3-10' of water. If you are familiar with Nashville, you may recognize some landmarks in this video.

So overwhelming for so many people! It has been heartening to see neighbor helping neighbor, and rather than complaining most people are feeling blessed by those helping them and thankful that most of what was lost can be replaced. The Volunteer State is earning it's nickname once again!

I worked on some Mothers Day cards this week for our wonderful Moms.
And I am happy to share the GSD file with you. 

Mother's Day Card Sentiments

*Thanks for always helping me to remember what is important in life . . . and today that is YOU!
Happy Mother's Day Weekend!
