Dishing It & Digging It Link Party #181

Welcome to another week of Dishing It and Digging It Link Party!

I only posted once this week, due to my dad passing away.  I have been spending lots of time with my Mom. She is doing well.  We are keeping her busy.
Her name is Jacqueline. The below photo of my Mom was taken while we were at lunch.

Know you will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead. I know your precious mom is thankful to have you to lean on.
