Celebrating Mothers

Happy Mother's Day to my mom, Ann.  Thank you for being a wonderful mom always!

Happy Mother's Day to my mother-in-law, and thank you for raising such a wonderful son and teaching him to be a great husband and father.  Thanks for everything you do for all of us!

My mother-in-law and father-in-law

My mother-in-law, Diane, standing.  Seated to her right, is another special mother in our family --  my husband's paternal grandmother, Kathryn, who celebrated her 95th birthday this February.  His maternal grandmother died when he was still in college.

On Mother's Day, I always think of my grandmothers.  Both have passed away now, but they were such an important part of my life.  I was so fortunate to have both grandmothers for a good part of my life.

Below is my maternal grandmother (and grandfather) when I was about ten years old.

And this is my paternal grandmother, with my sister and I at Easter.  Aren't our hair bands just the height of fashion?  :)

Happy Mother's Day to my sister, whose sweet daughter just graduated with honors from college last weekend.

This is my sister and I at the beach when our children were very young.  That's me on the left with the dark hair, and my sis is on the right.

I've been so blessed to be a mother.  This was our first "child."

We practiced with Bonnie and then were so fortunate to have our son.

Happy Mother's Day to all my sister bloggers; I hope you had a wonderful day!



  1. Hi Denise, I am still up! Watching tv - Sunday is a busy night, I watch one show and record another!! Hope you had a wonderful day. It is fun to see old family photos, it seems we all have similar shots! xo

  2. Very nice post. A tribute to all mothers and families held together with their love. xo Jenny

  3. What a lovely post Denise :o) Hope you had a lovely Mothers Day.
    Thank you for your kind comments, the plate you spied on the dresser is from The Georgian Collection by Churchill - a charity shop bargain! I do have other, old pieces that are very similar in 'Denmark' pattern by Furnival Limited, but as a blue and white junkie that's hardly surprising! You can read about them here:
    Have a great week!

  4. I have to say right at first that your mom hasn;t really changed since high school! She has the exact same pretty smile.

    Loved the way you shared your family pictures with us. Isn't your husband blessed to still have a grandparent? Oh, how I wish I did.

    Happy Belated Mother's Day!

  5. Your post was just wonderful. I love all the pictures of your family. They remind me a lot of mine too. I love all these memories that people are writing about right now in blogville. It's been so nostalgic for everyone. I just love when that happens.
