HAPPY 29TH, MOM...

Today's the day my Mom was born, and celebrates as her own.  I miss being home for the special days, but celebrate them each and every day, in my heart...today is one of the most special!
She's our rock - our anchor.  Loved by all - envied by some - hated by the new insurance companies (HA!).  Barbara; Bobbie; Babe; Mom; Gra (as in "Graugh" - the name my 1-year-old son hung on her, that has stuck a lifetime...my two kids STILL call her Gra to this day); Grandma; Great-Grandma; love of our lives.  These were all taken this summer in Santa Fe, and Denver - she makes oppressive heat look cool, somehow!  She'll be here in a few weeks, and we will continue the celebration we started last month, when I was home.  Party Central's got nuthin' on us, girl!
So, here's to you, Barb - 29 never looked better!  Love you to the moon and back, Mom - XOXO
