Mothers

Family FotoFun Friday Challenge #31 
Post your pictures on your blog and leave a link and a comment here before 5/18/2007.

This week's photo challenge, in honor of Mother's Day, is "Mothers".  Want to play?  Here are the very simple rules.

(My week has been so screwed up that I didn't even realize that today was Saturday!  I thought it was only Friday!  So, I'm not really prepared to do this week's challenge.  I'll add Andrew's Mother to this post after the kids are down for their naps and not driving me straight up the wall).

So, let's see... today is Tuesday, right?  And it's taken me this long to (finally) get around to adding this wonderful woman to my Mother's Day FFFF challenge. 

This is Andrew's mom and she's a truly wonderful woman!    This picture is one of my semi-recent favorites and was taken at Christmas 2005 in Santa Fe.  Mom is showing off her new Vermeer calendar (which is, obviously, no longer relevant since it was a 2006 calendar -- oh well.)

I'm very fortunate to have the personal life experience of having two mothers who are so kind and giving.   My mother in law is such a joy to know.  Most of all, I'm blessed to be loved by the man who was raised by such a woman because everyone knows that a husband will treat his wife the way he treats his mother.  I'm humbled and honored to be near the very center of my man's universe -- a place his mother earned and deserves and I spot I often don't feel worthy to occupy but humbly do.  As a mom to two daughters, I have wonderful role models for my chidren.  I wish with all my heart that my mother was still here to share these amazing mother/daughter moments but I'm happy that the girls have Nana on speed dial and she's just a push of a button away!

Happy Mother's Day to all present and future moms!
