Happy Mother's Day!

This is the last photo I have of my Mom, Mary. It was taken on Christmas Day. Although she was very ill, the "Party Girl" was still shining through! I think she looks beautiful in her crown, don't you?

I Love you Mom! I miss you every day!

My Mom...

  • Loved her husband passionately for more than half a century!
  • Raised 5 children who are all pretty terrific!
  • Knew her grandchildren were better than anyone else's!
  • Made friends who she cherished for decades!
  • Was never afraid to try something new!
  • Was an accomplished gardener!
  • Was a wonderful and inventive cook!
  • Loved to camp...first in a tent finally in her dream 5th wheel!
  • She could cut a rug!
  • Subscribed fiercely to the "blood is thicker than water" theory!
  • Always rooted for the underdog!
  • Loved Martinis, Roast Beef & Yorkshire Pud!

Best of all she loved me, and I always knew it! What more could a kid ask for?

I am thankful for all you wonderful moms who weave the fabric of our society & care for it daily!


P.S. The first song on my playlist is the Anniversary Waltz. It was Mom's favorite!

  1. She looks wonderful in her crown, as if she were born to the throne! She sounds like a special lady.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
