happy birthday mom!

I am so lucky to have you! We all are lucky to have you! So many of you have gotten a glimpse into my mother's world as you watch her settle into her dream "barn"( see the side bar if you're new here). Maybe you remember my Mother's Day post... and one or two of you might even remember my very first blog entry. My mother's presence here is a reflection of the tremendous role she plays in my life. I never take for granted how rare and blessed our relationship is...we've hit enough bumps along the way, to give me a true appreciation for how beautifully we love and support one another today! This next photo (one of my favorites) was taken 30 years ago on the lawn of her childhood home...the arrow points to my favorite detail: my sister's diaper pins attached to her shirt. I never noticed them until I was a mother, myself.

Magically never gets older
Yips and hollers when she's excited

Magnificent grandmother
