My mother's life is far from perfect.
She has met many challenges and juggled many responsibilities.
I admire the way that she has handled adversity and the way that she sacrificed and put on hold her personal needs in order to spend time ministering to the needs of my ailing father before he died.
Flowers are how I like to celebrate this special day...
I am fortunate to live close to my Mother we see each other often, and spend time together doing things we enjoy.
Here she is on one of our walks along the Esplanade
wearing the Maui Jim sunglasses that we bought for her to wear in her convertible!
Did I ever mention that she drives a BMW?
It's her dream car...
she's way ahead of me!
Cheers to all you Moms out there...
whether you are taking care of your baby,
raising young children,
or remembering your own Mother.
Enjoy and savour your day...
I am celebrating here with a cup of freshly brewed tea...
and looking back in the vast vault of memories from my childhood.
