Happy Mother's Day ! I hope that you all had a wonderful day and let your kids and hubs spoil you rotten! I got my usual Mother's day breakfast made by the kids--and now that they have gotten a little older, it was actually more on the edible side than it has been in the past! lol AND Mark actually came home early from the cabin so he could make me dinner, yeah--no cooking for me today! I had a great day and got spoiled quite nicely, thank you very much.
Here's a pic of me and my Mom--we're a couple of peas in a pod! I am bummed that the pic is so dark but I think you can still see us pretty good. This is only the second Mother's Day since my Mom died and I just miss her so much. I spent a bit of the day looking through old pictures and thinking back on our lives. I had a rather unusual life with my Mom--I actually had no contact with her when I was between the ages of 11 and 18 (it's a long story, and I'm feeling a little too weepy to tell it today) but when we were re-united we found out that we were practically the same person, lol. We had so many of the same interests and hobbies and likes and dislikes--and our voices and laugh were so alike that people couldn't tell us apart, and we even looked a lot alike. She was such a fun and loving woman and had such a spirit of encouragement towards others-- she just had a way of making people feel like they were worthwhile and could do anything if they put their mind to it. I love you Mom and I miss you.
I also ran across this pic of my parents on their wedding day--they are so young and pretty! This was back in 1959. I have to laugh at the wedding pics--my Mom was quite a fashion plate and made most of her (and our) clothes--She made her wedding dress and on her wedding day she completed her outfit with bright red shoes and purse! Yeah!
So, all of you reading this, if your dear Mother is still with you--go give her a big smooch and cherish the moments you have together.
