Happy Mother's Day Mom!

Today we celebrate a day in honor of our mother.  I am fortunate to have my mother who is 83 years old.  My mom lives two houses from me and still lives alone.  My dad passed away 12 years ago.  Mom is an easy going person and likes to laugh and joke around.  She's had hip replacement, knee replacement and a couple of back surgeries and she can't walk very good.  She also has osteoarthritis.  Mom is always in a positive mood though.

Mom  had a rough childhood.  My mom's dad passed away from a fire when she was a little girl.  Her mother died from breast cancer when she was pregnant with me.  So I never knew my grandma.  She also had a little brother that died when she was growing up.  

My mom got married when she was 16 years old!  She and my dad had my older sister who is ten years older than me.  Then she had a premature baby boy that died.  She couldn't get pregnant for a long time.  Then when my sister was ten years old my mom and dad had me!  Mom was married to my dad for over 50 years till he passed away.  I'm thankful for my mom and very blessed!
