You have shown me how to give of myself

You have shown me leadership

You have taught me to be strong

You have taught me the importance of family

You have demonstrated unconditional love

You have demonstrated a sensitivity to peoples' needs

You have handed down to me the important values in life

You have handed down to me the idea of achieving ones' goals

You have set an example throughout your life

of what an ideal mother and woman should be like

I am so proud of you

and I love you forever

Two years ago Mom developed cancer of the larynx and she had to get her 
"voice box" removed.  She underwent 6 weeks of intensive radiation therapy 
after her surgery  and she now speaks with an electronic device. 
She has beaten cancer.

Youth fades; love droops, the leaves of friendship fall; 
A mother's secret hope outlives them all.

God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine,
And He moulded her heart of pure gold;
In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful mother,
And He gave that dear mother to me.

  M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"
A word that means the world to me.
  ~Howard Johnson (c. 1915)

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; 
when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. 
~ Washington Irving (1783-1859)

Our home was always filled with music, laughter and people. 
Shortly after this picture was taken, Mom developed tuberculosis in one of her kidneys and she had to remain in a hospital for 9 months.  It was a tough year for the family, but we made it and became stronger because of this.
