Happy Mothers Day!

This is my Mom in 1981 with me and my sister in Guam. 

Since my Mom was traveling this Mothers Day I spent the day at a Birth Fair and lecture by one of the most revered midwives in the U.S., Ina May Gaskin.  It was a lovely, enlightening way to spend the day. 

Being on the verge of motherhood myself, I'm not sure I've ever appreciated my own Mother more.  She was the Girl Scout leader, the classroom assistant, the maker of Halloween costumes, and so much more.  I hope I can follow in her example.  I love you Mom!
