M is for...

M is for Mom and Motherhood...

My mother - this was taken years ago in our yard in Florida. She loved working in the yard and was one of those people who could make anything grow beautifully. The day before she had her first stroke she was helping us plant our garden in Tennessee. She still loves plants and flowers - even though she isn't able to garden anymore.
Motherhood - something I never thought would happen for me. I was 30 when I had my little girl...she was so tiny! Under five pounds when she was born...that red hair turned a gorgeous shade of blonde.
