Here's my mom on her 99th birthday in January, being congratulated by our granddaughter, Arielle. They gave her a "queen for a day" tiara at the senior center where the party was held, but of course she's royalty every day in our family. The second photo is my wife Brenda's mom--aged 87. She's a sweet lady who--in my experience--puts the lie to all those bad mother-in-law jokes. We're looking forward to taking them both to a Mother's Day Brunch.
What beautiful ladies! happy mother's day!
Your mother and your mother-in-law both have surprisingly youthful faces. They both appear to have much love in their lives. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks for sharing these photos of these lovely ladies. You and your wife have good genes!
Precious ladies indeed, Liz. Happy Mother's Day to you!
Hi Joanne--thanks and Happy Mother's Day to you. Our mothers radiate a lot of love, we are most fortunate.
Thanks, Deborah. Happy Mom's day to you!
What a great tribute they both look so well and I'd never guess their ages!
What a treasure to have such beautiful women in your life.
Thanks, Erika. They are kindhearted ladies, but real survivors. They built them tough back then!
That's sure true, Leslie--thanks!
What an inspiration seeing these pictures. Both of your mothers have so much beauty and spark in their beings. I can see both of you in your mothers.
Happy belated Mother's Day to your mom, Don!
99? Wow! That's an accomplishment all on its own.
You better start making HUGE plans now for next year when she hits the big 100.
Thanks a lot, Dean. Yeah I know, 100 coming up--wow! Mom forgets her own age, and when I tell her she shakes her head in amazement.
How precious these old folks become to us Don. My mum is 89 and I find time and again that her life experience often provides just the right answer to my daily problems. I remember when I was a teenager and didn't want to hear!Yes, what you said to Erika, they made them tough in those days. I hope I've inherited some of that toughness!
Hi Sheila--good to hear from you. Yes, a lot of wisdom garnered in all those years of living. As old as I am, I must be getting really smart too! :>}
