Today is my mother's birthday. If she were still alive, she would have been 86 today. Sadly, she died nearly 4 years ago. I'm just thankful that she was able to see both of my children happily married.
The photo below is of my daughter, Carolyn, and my mother taken at Carolyn's wedding reception five years ago. Carolyn is sitting in her grandmother's lap. I love this photo of the two of them!!
Mother so badly wanted to be a great-grandmother ... something she never lived to see, but I'm sure that she must know that her first grandchild and namesake had a baby (her one and only great-grandchild) 20 months ago. How she would have loved to have seen and played with Haiden!
Happy birthday, Mother!! We miss you!!
