Sept 23, 1974....that when it all began for me. The top 2 photos are from the hospital when my mother had me, that is my dad and brother in the first one. The photo on the bottom right is right after they brought me home from the hospital (in a Model A- a story for another day). My brother wanted to be the first one to hold me...so they let him! And the last photo, bottom left is me and my brother on my first birthday, with my favorite toy "Ollie"!
My mom has always been a great mom & still is to this very day. We talk often and love to do things together, although we don't get to as much as either of us would like. She was a stay-at-home-mom but she gladly made that financial sacrifice to spend time with us and be a hands on parent. She spent time with us, taught us things and built not only relationships with my brother and I, but friendships. Sure, we've had our ups and downs through the years. I wasn't exactly the easiest kids to parent...but she has never let any slack in the line that connects my heart to hers!
