OMG, What Kind of a Mother Am I?

Fifty-eight years ago today, we had a  birthday party for this sweet little two year old girl who has now turned 60.   Can you imagine I forgot to put up a birthday post for my daughter?   I didn't forget her birthday - just didn't do a post.  Oh, me, oh, my, the mind is starting to go!  Here she is with the whole family, except for my brother who was in the air force at the time.  Sherry is in her new wagon between daddy and (a pregnant) mommy.  In back is my sister, Jo, her two grandmas - Ray's mom and mine, her grandpa who always had gum for "Sherry's mouth",  her great grandmother, Maggie Pearce, whose was 82 that same
day, and her great aunt Leah, my mom's sister.

Here she is with her brother, Bill, and his 57 Chevie when we lived in Newton, Kansas, in the very early 1970's,   
Here is a cute picture of Sher showing off her new fingernails she had done in Portland before Molly's wedding last summer.  This summer she and Barclay will be grandparents for the first time.  Their girls are scattered all over but they are still such a close family.  Molly in Portland, Norah now in Denver and that Hannah way over there in Mozambique.  She will be coming back for a visit at Christmas and that will be wonderful.  She will need to meet her new little nephew!

The entire family last summer at Molly and Doug's wedding.
So, my dear daughter, the day isn't over so I did get this in on your actual birthday.  Just want you to know I am so very glad we had you - you are quite a woman!   I am very proud of you and love you so much.  Many more happy birthdays to you, Sher.  God bless!

I am so lucky to be a part of the family that brought me into the world. Although number 60 is not an easy birthday, I have a perfect role model in my mom for adding the years without really growing old! Love you, Mom!
