Happy Mothers Day!

Wow, Time has flown by which means I am opting for a bit of a repost.









Few of us will reach our potential without the nurturing of both the mother who bore us and the mothers who bear with us.

-Sheri Dew

Mom -
Thanks for teaching me to be strong. You are the main reason to why I know that motherhood is an opportunity of a lifetime and my most noble calling. I truly do think that good mothers around the world are the secret weapon in life.

I love you Momma!

I need a tissue now. Good memories were had in that wood paneled station wagon. I remember that day when Mom dressed us up as pioneers and took us to the mountains for a picnic.

Moms are the best!

Happy Mothers Day to all of you other fine woman out there.

Thank you so much my dear darling daughter. You are such a jewel. There's something special about that first child....firsts are always the most frightening and yet the most adventurous!!

PS(Since I was accused of looking like I was 12 when I got married, I think I had better clarify that I was graduating from college not high school when you were born!! haha)

Such sweet photos! Don't you love those hard, plastic looking baby carriers that were available in the 70s?

How amazing how much your girls favor you as a child. That is so cool!

Hope you had a delightfully wonderful day. :)
