Happy Mothers Day 2014

Happy Mothers Day to all the mom's out there.  But I'd like to throw an especially warm greeting out to my mom.  In the last 14 months she has undergone total knee replacement surgery on both of her legs and endured countless weeks of grueling physical therapy.  Once she finally got back on her feet, so to speak, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  It's been a real one-two punch.

But through it all, she has kept a brave face and reached for new heights...


Never once has she uttered the words "why me?" or "this is too hard."  Instead she gets out and goes geocaching with us and reaches new milestones...


I have never heard her say one word of complaint.  On the days that she feels good she will go out for something to eat...


 And has even found the energy to act silly and "phoon" with her family....


She puts on a brave face when she gets up each day and greets it with her iron will and strong determination.  I know there have been days when she's been frustrated, scared and worried, but she never shows it.   She is a shining example to her whole family on how to face your struggles head on and just deal with them.  She is very no-nonsense.


The worst part has been losing her hair, but she dealt with that by bravely shaving her head first, just to show cancer who really was the boss and in charge.  You gotta love my mom!


Mom, I love you more than you will ever know.  You have always been my strength, my rock and my perfect example of how to be strong.  Happy Mothers Day.

  6. What a lady! Like my own late mother, I suspect yours comes from that school of souls who put on a stiff upper lip and won't allow life's trials to define them. Love this picture of y'all 'phooning'!

    PS - As you and so many others did for my hubby, I'm honored to hold your mom (and all who love her!) in my prayers.
