Happy 96th Birthday, Mom!


My favorite 'Mom' quotes:

1. I love you!
2. It could be worse!
3. Food is medicine!
(and I would answer: 
'I over-dosed myself!!'
And she would laugh!)

No, it's not Sunday today...and apparently no one of interest 
(to me!) was born today so that I could post a quote, so I 
decided to put together a little photo vignette of Sunday, 
August 10....
Bren and I had time to wander around a bit because we had 
to wait till around 2 pm to get on the ship....

I have been through a lot and have suffered a great deal. 
But I have had lots of happy moments, as well. 
Every moment one lives is different from the other. 
The good, the bad, hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love, 
and happiness are all interwoven into one single, 
indescribable whole that is called life. 
You cannot separate the good from the bad. 
And perhaps there is no need to do so, either.
