Happy Mother's Day


A family friend recently sent me this picture of Mama holding Abby almost three years ago. We were attending a baby shower. It says a lot about my Mama.

In most of the pictures we have of her and the grandchildren, the kids are looking at the camera and Mama is looking at the kids. She adores each and every one of them. And they adore her back.

It amazes me that despite having so many children (4) and so many grandchildren (14 including step-grandchildren), she fosters unique, individual relationships with all of us. She is always looking at us, within us... and always finding beauty.... even when it is difficult to see. She rocks.

Happy Mother's Day right back at you - you know I think you rock too.

And I appreciate you are maintaining a dignified silence as to how your mother is going but it was really lovely to see this photo of her. Never doubt that she is in my mind when I come to visit you or when you are over at my place.

Happy Mother's Day, Melinda and everyone else(although it's a little late).

I just wanted to drop a line to let you know that I came across your blog by accident, but have learned alot while reading.

If any of you met Ms. Pat, you could clearly see that she is a very remarkable woman. I may not be there as much as I would like, but I am extremely greatful that I have been blessed to know her and the entire family. I love you all.
