Mother’s day, 2009....
a day I won’t forget.

For over a month before mother’s day,
my daughters were creating
a surprise gift for me….
They were real sneaky about it.
I usually know when things are
happening around me….
but this time…I didn’t even suspect.
The gift that they created
really touched my heart….
even now when I think about it….
I’m teary eyed.
I love my girls….
they grew up so fast….
and now have families of their own.
What they did, showed their love….
I am so proud of them….
and will always cherish the
wonderful picture book
of memories.

I will share a few pages with you.

The front cover...
Me with Terri...newborn...
Tania holdng up birth announcement.

I love my family.
Thank you girls for giving me one of the
most memorable mother's day ever....
I love you.

Very nice! I knew about this, I was to look for pictures to send Terri Ann and I forgot. She should have reminded me. (Shouldn't that read Tania holding up birth announcement?)
