As we celebrate Mother's day, let me just say how impressed I am with my own mother. I know, I know, everyone is a little biased about their own moms. But, as an adult, I look back in awe of my mom. Can you imagine having 8 kids in 8 years? I have no idea what strength and courage it took to raise such a family.
Thanks mom – you owned your own business while managing to prepare sit-down dinners every night. You came to virtually all of my volleyball games and horse shows. You even taught me how to speak a little Japanese!
My mom also has a wicked sense of humor. She sent me this long lost photo of herself with the caption, "Bringing home annual baby!" I love it! The difference between men and women? I showed the picture to my dad and his response was typical. "I remember that car!"
Happy Mother's Day Mom!
From your grateful you didn't stop youngest of the bunch, Marilyn
