Welcome everyone, this is Gayle and I’m your host for Open Link Night.

This week will be a happily busy one for me as my two out-of-town sisters are visiting. We four sisters spent Mother’s Day together with our mother for the first time in a very long while so it was especially meaningful for all of us.  There were twelve of us at our luncheon on Sunday.

One of the sisters made the drive over to Sebastian from Orlando this week to spend a couple days with me and to see the other family members that reside here. My youngest sister will arrive a little later and stay several days as her daughter lives here as well.  So I’m feeling delighted and blessed to have them here…we are a close bunch and love to spend time together.

Perhaps you may feel reflective after just having had Mother’s Day and would like to share thoughts about the day or your relationship with your mother…good or bad or somewhere in between.
