    Both my Mom and my Mom-in-Law have been gone 8 years now, having died one month and one day apart.  Both were over 90 years of age and we are very grateful we had so much time with them and so many wonderful memories.  They loved each other, their families, socializing, and life.  They were always laughing and smiling.  We miss them every day.

    I know they will be smiling down upon us as we gather at our daughter, Amy's house today for a Mother's Day Brunch celebrating me and my daughters, all of whom are wonderful moms and mother figures and role models for the children in their lives.

    1. Wendy you were lucky and fortunate that both your mother and mother in law loved each other. It is rare. Usually there is always some tension between the two mums. Am so happy you had so many years with both of them.

      1. I am so blessed in so many ways Mayuri. Having family that blends and loves each other is so very fortunate.

    2. My mom and my mother-in-law don't have the chance to socialize much since Jake's family is a 9-hour drive away. But they do get along. I can't wait to try these sausage balls. They look SO savory and tasty.

    3. I so nice to see both mother's together, God bless them! These sausage balls are perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch.
