Mothers' Day 2008 - Post 17

I had a lovely Mothers' Day with the two of my four children who were close to home on that day. My eldest daughter was taking a long-overdue vacation with her husband and having a good time in Gatlinburg, TN. My youngest daughter lives with her husband and son on the island of Okinawa, Japan. I had telephone calls from both on Sunday. Not quite like having them here, but much appreciated.

I enjoyed a wonderful Sunday dinner with my middle daughter and three of her four children after church, then shared an evening meal with my son and his family.

Edited 5/17/08: The photo is of four generations of my family gathered at my son's home: my son and his wife; their two daughters; the husband of the elder daughter and their two children; and some crabby old woman who insisted on being in the photo.

I am most pleased to have a four-generations snapshop; it's not often enough that we are all together, since my elder granddaughter and her family live in San Antonio, TX.

I have a snapshot at home, from around 1965, of myself (age 8) with my Mom (33, at the time), my Grandmother (59), and my Great-Grandmother (possibly 90?), when we were visiting her in Florida. It was the only time I ever met her, so far as I know. I've got to find that shot and take a look at it again; stir up some memories. Thanks for bringing it to mind!

"If wrinkles must be written upon our brows, let them not be written on the heart". Ilove your quote. How I would appreciate that my mother (my 2 grand-mothers are no more with us)write a blog for my children (her grand-children).
All your family is lucky to have you, retired, but so young in your heart!
