With Love To Momma

Where to begin? How does one begin to thank the lady who carried babies for fifty four months of her life, then many more years worth of carrying with twenty grandchildren ranging in age from 26 years to 10 months old. Grandmother with blessing #20-Emory Ann.
She's always been the first to rush to the side of a needy family member or friend, whatever the trouble may be. She's the first one to want to celebrate milestones with family gatherings no matter how many people are included on the guest list. How does she remember all those birthdays? That's a feat in itself. The sewing, gardening, fishing, driving, cooking, and life lessons have been overseen by her with unlimited patience and humor. Mom, we can never thank you for all your generosity and unconditional love, but we'll try for the rest of our days.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom! We love you.
