Two hearts are better than one

Something happened to me this Mother's Day that has never happened before. My sons got together and sent me the most beautiful tulips!

The flowers arrived on Friday while I was at work and when our UPS man

laid the package by my desk, I got the immediate feeling that this was something especially for me and not something that he needed to pass on for me to deliver further.

I've never received flowers from my two sons collectively before, and the gesture was just so touching. You know, any time someone you love sends you flowers, it's wonderful.

I know Mother's Day is hard on some and to you, and I want to say that if it is painful, I just hope these pictures will ,at least, make you smile. It's a beautiful spring day. So enjoy as best you can.

Cheers!

Oh, and PS -- Bonus points for knowing who wrote the song that I'm thinking of in the title post.
