Happy Mother's Day!

I'm happy!  I've been a happy mother since my older son was born back in 1966 and my younger one two years later.

 1968

I was happy with my boys throughout their childhood.
1978(?)

Even through their teenage years.
1985


I very much enjoyed their young adulthood.
1991

I'm happy being the mother of these two fine grown men.
2010

I'm happy to be mother-in-law to their wives.
2009

And "Granellie" to their children.
2009

I wish all of my friends who are also mothers and my daughters-in-law a joyous and peaceful Happy Mother's Day.
