Happy Mother's Day

       Good Morning Moms and everybody else,
     It is a beautiful Adirondack day complete with blue sky and temps. that promise to top out in the high 60's or low 70's.  Perfect weather for being home and catching up before back to school tomorrow.  
     Today I am going to make a point of living in the now instead of dwelling on all the challenges that will rise inevitably in the future.  Thanks to my friend Lisa, whose blog, Journey Towards a Mindful Life, is a reminder to do so, I will make myself mindful of the task.  
       Today, I am posting yet another series of photographs from my archives and a video.  Hope you will enjoy these images of motherhood as you celebrate the day with family and friends.  Enjoy!

Helen, (right), was Hannah's mother.
Cindy, (middle), and Michele, (right) are both wonderful mothers. 
 All of the younger women in this picture of Rod's family are fabulous mothers who had an amazing role model, their mother, Rachel, (far left, 1928 -2011). 
 Xena, (last Westie on the right), is the mother of all the other Westies in this picture.
 Grammie was not only a wonderful mother, she was a super grandmother and great-grandmother.
 My mother with baby Nina and Casey Bird.
 Helen took to motherhood perfectly.  Here with Rachel, (top) and Hannah, (bottom).
 Mrs. Chicken was very elderly when she came to live with us.  She was the mother of many.
 My mother with Helen, (behind), and Helen's third baby Jordan. 
 Mother Michele and handsome Murray.
 My mother and her mother, Grammie.
My sister, Sue, (left on Welby), the mother of four, (two are in this picture), and grandmother to Welby!
Liam, (left), and Lilly lost their mother at two weeks old.  I gladly took over the role.
Jean is a mother and grandmother.
Irene is Ben's mother.
After raising to fine human boys, Vicky has become Tango's mother. 


  1. Happy Mother's Day to you!
    What would your 11 horses, 3 goats, 4 dogs, pig and iguana do without their Mommy?
    Can't imagine that a more dedicated pet parent exists!
    P.S. Hope I got those #s right!
    (can't lie, I cheated. I looked at your Christmas photo...lol)

  2. Great post Anne! Love all of the pictures and thanks for the plug for my blog. I am honored that my posts have made you think about living a mindful life!
