Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to each one of you hard working, dedicated women who has been given the privilege of raising, or having raised, other human beings entrusted to your care. It is the most awesome job that a woman can take on. Today we honor all those mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers. Thank you for the sacrifices made in deference to those tender little lives.

"Why am I here? Really??"...Nicolas

We are Family!!
We were blessed with one of the first days this Spring that actually felt like Spring! Maybe even a hint of was beautiful as we ventured from the old downtown streets to the park and then to the creek. Nicolas really warmed up to me...even told his mother he wanted to go with her when we meet again.(She told me he doesn't warm up to very many people...I feel so honored!!) Yes, we became friends indeed.

Such a beautiful family; true friendship between a teenager and her mother! I am blessed to call them my friends and was thankful to have this day with them.
