When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

Happy Mother's Day!

Justin, Mom, Mika and I (circa 1977-1978)

Celebrating my Mom on Mother's Day. Thank you Mom for always being there for me, listening and giving me a boost when I needed one. Sometimes I can still hear you when I have a bad day. Thank you for the gift of my sister and brother, two of my favorite people in this world. Thank you for the gift of showing me strength in adversity. My new motto is... "I can do this! I am my mother's daughter after all!" I miss you so much!

Celebrating my own motherhood on Mother's Day. I have two beautiful daughters and a sweet little baby growing inside me. I am blessed beyond measure!

Happy Mother's Day!
