Mother's Day

Moma and Me
I cooked supper for my moma and the in-laws. There were 16 of us including the kiddos. I grilled whole chickens, green beans, corn & rice casserole, spinach artichoke dip, baked potatoes, salad, and rolls. Bethany brought an apple pie with ice cream.

For almost 36 years, it has been only Moma and Me (my Daddy passed away when I was 4 mos old). Moma made several sacrifices for me and I am grateful for that. I can only imagine how difficult that was for her to lose her husband and to have to raise a 4 mo. baby on her own. Luckily, she had a lot help from both sets of grandparents. Mother's Day is a day to celebrate and appreciate your moms. I hope everyone had a terrific Mother's Day!!
