HHH!

With Humbleness(deepest respect) I Honor my Hero!
There are many I would call my hero....
but today I want to honor my mom!
I wish I had understood more clearly all the elements of her life that made her the type of mother she was! And I admit, with humbleness, that I did not appreciate what a wonderful mother she was until after her death six and a half years ago.
So, with love to my sisters and my dad......
I honor her!
(about 1962...mom, myself, Deanna & Ruth)
This weekend I will be spending time with my family at a sisters lake cabin(hey...it's Minnesota)!
And with the size of family we have there is always a birthday....this month it's a niece and a sister!!
With limited time and mojo these are what I came up with!

I hope all of you have a great Memorial weekend....
celebrate with family and friends!!
