Happy Mother’s Day!

I’ve got a great mom :)  It’s hard to describe how very awesome she is.  She’s always been incredibly loving, caring, nurturing, and fun.  I honestly felt as a child (and still feel) that nothing was as important to her as raising her children.  And isn’t that what a great mother is?  She’s a great mother :)

So, today we honor and celebrate our mothers.  And, as is my style, I’m going to do so with a few pictures!

This first picture was taken in 1978 at my dad’s family farm in central Nebraska.  I’m not sure of the exact date this picture was taken, but I believe my mom was pregnant with me at the time.  I think it’s a great shot.

These next two pictures were taken on the front porch at our first home in Colorado.  I wanted to post a few pictures of my mother’s young family.  Here are the three “Thede-lets” and mom.  The first picture is from the summer of 1984.  The second was taken on Easter Sunday in 1985.

Happy Mother’s Day, mom!  You done good!  I hope you’re out enjoying a relaxing afternoon in Colorado, preferably planting flowers recently purchased from Tagawa :)
