A Note About Mother's Day

By
Real Estate Agent with Classic Realty Realtor

I was thinking this morning of how blessed I am. In fact the blessings I've thought about today are two in number:

1. I have a beautiful wife of 44 years! She was/is a fantastic mother of three children and is also a terrific grandmother. She is steady, consistent and always can be counted on. You see, I am a blessed man because of being married to this wonderful lady. Lest you are thinking I'm full of hyperbole this afternoon, I'm not. I can tell you she is great and wonderful because she has put up with me for all of these years! (smile) That in itself speaks volumes when it comes to the greatness of my wife, the mother of our children. I am so thankful for her. Happy Mother's Day Sharon....

2. The second blessing I want to share is simple to understand. I am 64 and my mother is still living and doing very well. She has Alzheimer's but the illness has been progressing at a very slow rate of speed. In fact, although she was diagnosed over two years ago, I think sometimes her memory is better than mine. Needless to say, as a family (speaking for my sisters, too) we are grateful! I have always and always will love and appreciate/value my mother. Happy Mother's Day Mom....

To ALL of my Readers who are Mothers - HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!
