Happy Mother's Day

I love this photo of my mom and me. It was taken almost two years ago, at a concert we attended in Vienna. My mom is a beautiful woman, inside and out. I owe so much to her - I love to cook and sew because she taught me. Homemaking is something she excels at. My children used to joke that if I was cleaning the oven, Grandma must be coming. Not quite true, but almost.

My mom has a strong faith, is a peacemaker, prays for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, loves her husband and is loved by us all.  

"Her children arise and call her blessed..."

Happy Mother's Day, Mom.


  1. A wonderful photo of you both. You are both beautiful gals. Happy Mother's Day!

  2. Great picture of you and your mom.

  3. Ce que tu dis de ta maman est très touchant. J'espère qu'un jour mes filles diront des choses aussi gentilles de moi.
    La fête des mères aura lieu à une autre date en France, le 29 mai. J'espère que tu auras passé une bonne journée !

  4. Lorrie - you are fortunate to be so close to your mother in body and spirit. She is a lovely looking lady!

  5. A concert in Vienna! with your mom! What fun that must have been. What was playing?
