The M Word

I have a mom who is still alive in this world. I love her but it’s complicated. I’ve unpacked that bag a few thousand times and still never bring enough socks. Bottom line: I love her. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.

Then, there’s the icing on the cake that is motherhood,  the grandest of all of the grand moments,  becoming a granny! For me, that means more suitcases, but pretty ones I can pack at a moment’s notice. And do.


A week ago, I was with Owen in Seattle

He seemed puzzled that I was not on the telephone screen, but then he got used to it.

He’s not confused about anything yet, he’s just an angel.

There are a couple of new moms I’m related to…those awesome women my sons had the good sense to marry. This is their first mother’s day ever. Last year, I had no grandchildren, this year I celebrate two of them!! A rainbow of a Mother’s Day ❤
