Denise made “A Mother’s Love” (above) as a bee challenge. I liked what she wrote about it: “It’s called A Mother’s Love because a mother’s love is endless, overflowing and topsy-turvy all at the same time.” I believe she is exactly right!

Wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day, and time spent with the ones you love.
