Manic Monday - Bud


Mo's word of the week is "Bud." The rosebud is from last year's garden. I have all sorts of buds blooming this year. I've spent quite a few hours on my knees planting all sorts of "buds." But the most important "Bud," is my loving husband! We'd known each other for several years through our church while we were married to other people. Due to death and divorce, a friendship became love! I am fortunate to find not only my husband, but my "Best Bud."

Please visit another "bud" of mine at Mo's Manic Monday!

We have lots of buds starting in the yard, my Mom 'Bean and I are best buds... and maybe one day she will meet a man that will be her close 'bud' too, cuz I'm getting up in years and won't always be able to be here woof Mom 'Bean.

You're a lovely couple. Finding a friend and a partner in life at the same time is a great blessing.

He's a handsome Bud too! You and I took the same route. My hubby, Hank is my best bud as well.

Aren't we both just so lucky?
