Sentimental Sunday ~ Happy Mother's Day my Beautiful Mom ~



 

I love this photo of mom (1933-2010) and I . . . as I stare at it, I can see and feel the love and closeness that my mom and I shared. She was the most beautiful loving, caring, wise mom and I got to be her daughter . . . how I miss her. Happy Mother's Day Mom . . . I love you! 

                     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~♥~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And . . . very special Mother's Day wishes to my "other" mom's. These mom's love me and have been there for me no matter what, thank you . . . love and hugs to you all.

  • Hazel ~ Has been a part of my life since I was about four years old
  • Marie ~ My ex mother-in-law who has been a part of my life since I was fifteen years old and still a part of my life today. I love hearing the words, "You are my daughter!"
