Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day means a little more to me each year.  Not just because I am a mother myself now, but because I am an adult and I understand my mother better the older I get. 
Cindy and Rodger Shaver, Summer 1971

She really should have gone crazy raising the five of us.

But she didn't, and I am grateful she is always there.

I am so grateful that I get to be a mother too...

...even if all I want for Mother's Day is the day off from being a mother.

Happy Mother's Day!

Thank you, Laura. What fun pictures to share. I sure have gotten old. People told me the time would fly, guess I didn't really believe them.
