Happy Mother's Day

These are my babies. I love this goofy photo that was taken a couple of years ago. They are so funny together now that they have grown to appreciate each other. They are both wonderful people for whom I am very proud of my small part in their lives. It is a time in my life that I would not give up! For someone who in her early 20's thought she did not want to have children, it was one of the best times in my life. I am so thankful that my husband and I decided we wanted to have some babies.

I am happy and sad today. My son was able to make it home last night with a long ride in a tow truck since the brakes on his truck decided to die. But my daughter had to work all day yesterday and has classes tomorrow and lives too far away for a quick trip to visit. I will miss having them both home together. However I feel like a very lucky mother to have the great relationships with both of my children and I love them dearly.
Happy Mother's day to my Mom!!!

This is a photo of my Dad, Mom and my Uncle Jim. I think it is one of the best old photos. Of course this was several years before I came along but I just love this. My mom is an incredible person and has taught me so much. She loves life and everything in it. Thanks Mom for always being there for me!!!

I hope all of you have a great Mother's Day and I especially hope my Mom has a nice one!!!


  1. i love you!!! you are the most wonderful, amazing and talented mother ever! I'm so grateful for everything you've done for me! I can't wait to have a late mothers day with you soon!

  2. What an adorable photo of your 'babies'! And I love the other one with your parents and uncle too! I hope your Mother's Day was wonderful!

  3. cute kids! I understand your sadness over not having your daughter with you. Last year our daughter was on call and couldn't be with us. It is difficult, but I guess that is part of having adult children....and isn't it better that they can't be with us because they have good jobs!!!
