Mother's Day

Here is one of the last pictures taken of my mom. That was more than 21 years ago, because she has been gone for that long. She died at 42.

Gosh, as the years go by, I remember her less and less. I was 22 when she died. My brother and sister, even younger.

What I do know with most certainty and with clarity, is that I had always hoped to be a good mother as, even if the memories aren't so clear anymore, I know she must have been. I feel it in my heart every day - as I mother my children.

That is a sweet post and you most certainly are a great mom...and I love ya. So glad we became friends BECAUSE we are moms! Happy Moms Day!

She was a great Mom, and so are you. When we went to the cemetery yesterday, all I could think of was how much I wish she could see us as mothers (and Chris as a father), and how much I'd love to see her being a grandmother to all these beautiful kids.

What an awesome picture of you and the kiddos. Gosh, you just look more and more like her every day.

Happy Mom's Day to you. I wish I could have met your Mom. Chris has so many wonderful memories of her. I am sure she is aware of what great kids and grandkids she has.
