    I love my mom so much. She is 87 now and ill health. I always remember her as a strong woman, but her age has taken its toll and has beat her down these last couple of years. Her physical self is so weak, but her spirit still burns strong. Today is Mothers Day. For those of you that still have their mom on this earth make sure and reach out to your mom on a regular basis. The saying “Life Is Short”, couldn’t be more true.
    HAPPY MOTHERS DAY….to all the loving moms of the world!

    Glad to have been part of this fun tribute. Mom is a main focus right now in our family and this particular mother’s day was exceedingly important to me. I was very pleased to see that you used my intro pic to introduce ‘Paying Tribute to Dear Old Mom’. I’ve snipped it to share with my family that Mom made the headlines, they will be pleased as well. Thx again Squidoo, you have been like a ‘mother’ to me.
