Thankful Things

It is hard to be away from family, especially on special days like mother's day. My mom deserves the honor and attention and pampering that come with the celebration. She has been such an example to me of a patient, honest, loving and sacrificial mom. I am so thankful for the woman she is and the relationship we have today. This photo was taken on my parent's honeymoon I believe. If you look close enough you can see the sparkle in her eye that was one day to be me. :)

On this day she had no idea she would be the mother of three. She is so young and hip in this picture. I wish she had saved all her late seventies clothes for me. And I love her wild hair, somehow my hair is neither thick nor curly. Bummer. Maybe my kids will have better luck.

Well, Mom, I hope you enjoy your picnic tomorrow. And I wish I was there with you! I would make you seven layer dip (with no beans of course) and then ask you to search our basement one last time for that yellow tank top.

wiith a lotta love,
Melissa
