HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

BEST WISHES TO ALL THE MOMS!


To all the wonderful women who have
comforted and raised humans and felines.
Those who have given of themselves unselfishly,
nurtured and supported spiritually and physically
those unable to do so for themselves.
Thank you and God bless you.


Count yourself very lucky if your mother is still alive.  Perhaps you remember my mother died of leukemia last August, and this is my first Mother's Day without her.  I miss her and think of her every day.  There is no one who can ever take the place of your mom, so cherish her while you can.

Like mother, like daughter.
The mom and her mom during earlier and happier times, 
on the way to the church for the mom's brother's wedding.

(The mom's dad doesn't really have a pointed head,
it was a really windy day!)

Mom says she is sorry that your mom is no longer with you. She lost her mom at age 16 in 1965. Very hard to grow up and not have your mom participate in the milestones of your life!
