I want to wish everyone a very happy Mother's Day!
I also wanted to share a few of my favorite pictures.
Me, Tish, Ashton, Erik and my grandmother Madge in FL.

I can't believe it has been just over a year since we have all been together. Tish and her husband Dan live in Pensacola, FL, Erik and Ashton live here in NC with me and my grandmother lives in TN. So as you can guess it is very difficult to get everyone on the same schedule for a visit but we are trying to plan a surprise visit to my grandmothers soon. Ashton leaves in just over a month when school is out to visit her dad who is currently stationed in Italy. She is excited to see him of course but not so sure about leaving for the whole summer. She and I have never spent more than 3 weeks apart and that was very hard for both of us. I keep telling her that once she gets there she'll be so busy that she'll get over being homesick and that we will of course talk often.
Hopefully we can bring my grandmother here for a visit this summer. She and I are very close, she is like a mother to me and we haven't missed a Sunday talking on the phone since I moved from Tn in 1989. We also talk every Tuesday, so I guess you can say we're very close. She means the world to me, she has always been there for me for all the highs and lows that life has thrown my way. She is my rock.
Ok, enough for now. I didn't intend to be so wordy. I hope everyone has a blessed and happy mother's day and please remember to say a prayer for the moms who are currently deployed and serving our country and can't be home with their children.
