Some people just have the right stuff..they are amazing human beings. They can over come obstacles in life. They can make you smile and laugh with them. They can take a licking and keep on ticking. Smart as a whip, brave as a gladiator. An example of a "They" is my own Mom. I have so many pictures in my mind of her doing everyday life with vigor and a never say die attitude. Mom passed down a work ethic to her children. You are not to be idle! If there is something that needs done and you think you can't do it..well, you're wrong. Her motto is "just do it". She has a strong faith that God will always be there to help if you just ask in prayer. I actually think she has the red phone "hot line" directly to Him! Today is her birthday...86yrs. young. I called her from work so we all could sing Happy Birthday to her and I asked if she was outside working in the garden. "No" she said..."I did all the mulching and weeding yesterday". I wish I could be there today to sing in person, to eat cake with her, and to gain more wisdom. Here are just a few peeks into her fun personality. She can look as amazing in fur coats as she does in her gardening clothes. Classy Gal my Mom!
Nothing attracts Mom quicker than a stove..and this one is a yummy one! She could hardly walk away. I had to drag her out kicking and screaming until she realized we could not get it on the plane....
She has a way of saying things just with her eyes..even with sunglasses on..I can tell she's saying..BACK OFF WITH THE CAMERA!!! Only she didn't shout it. She's too much of a lady for that!
Even being eaten alive by a bear in Alaska...Mom's got style and grace...Love you Mommo! Have a very Happy Birthday! Tell us, what's it like to reach mid-life?
