(It took a lot of convincing to
get my mother to pose for
this shot. She did not
like to be photographed, or
to be the center of attention.
My image is a photo of the photo,
which is why there are reflections
on it, from the glass.)

Happy Mother's Day to all of the wonderful mothers around the

I feel extremely blessed to have two delightful sons, a lovely, sweet, kind
daughter-in-law, my younger's son's lovely, kind girlfriend, and two 
adorable granddaughters in my family.  Mother's Day is wonderful for me
 every day of the year -- although this year it has been minus the hugs and
indoor festivities.

And I feel blessed to have grown up with my own mother who's been
gone now for seven and half years.  I love you and miss you Mommy. 
You are in my thoughts every day, and I frequently hear your voice
praising and advising me.

For all of us mothers worried about this crazy pandemic, many of you
working on the front lines -- my love goes out to you.  And my Mother's
Day wish is for all of us to get double vaccinated so we can enjoy
our family and friends again.

Have a Happy, Happy Mother's Day.
