Happy Mother’s Day !!

My mom . .

She is a rock . . you cannot give her anything that she cannot handle . .

~ ~ emotionally and physically . . although she is a little slower these days.

She held us all together . . . when my dad died.

~ ~ especially me, when I fell to my knees and could not “get up”.

Mom's 88th Birthday Party

Here she is . . at her Surprise 88th (Double Infinity) Birthday Party. . .

We children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren admire her deeply . .

~ ~ for her strength, forgiving soul, unselfishness, her happy spirit . .

~ ~ ~ ~ her great outlook on life, and her generosity.


Me and mom . . . about 6 months ago at my brother’s retirement party .

I only hope that I look as good as she does when I am pushing 90 !!! . .

Happy Mother’s Day to all ! ! !
