Happy Mother's Day

Wishing all the moms out there a lovely and happy Mother's Day. This is a bit of a hard day for me because I can't spend it with my mom. Instead I'll spend the day remembering her and all she means to me. She was an amazing woman and she taught me how to be a good person and value life. 

Here's my mom holding me in 1974. I really cherish this photo and am so grateful to have it. Her expression is full of love and happiness.

I love this picture too because it speaks of the many fun and happy times to ahead of us. I have great memories of my mom putting on some music and singing and dancing around the kitchen as she cooked dinner. Her excitement was contagious.

And here's my mom as a senior in high school. She's so fresh and beautiful and ready for the world.

I love you and miss you, mom. I can't thank you enough for everything you gave me and taught me and the love you shared with me. Happy Mother's Day to the women out there who give their all so that their kids know they're loved and cherished.  =)
