Happy Mother's Day

Char's Mother's Day
Originally uploaded by Cavalier92
As I lay here in bed with one eye swollen shut from all of the tree pollen choking the air, I realize about the only thing that could make me even consider trying to overcome this would be visiting my mother and sister for Mother's Day.

I can't thank her enough for all that she did for me as a kid and all that she continues to do for me as an adult. We were all able to spend some great time with her this weekend as she made one of her eagerly-anticipated visits. Every one had a great time drinking tea and planting flowers and enjoying chocolate chip pancakes.

Char has done a great job as she stepped in to mother my our children. It's got to be a hard thing at times to be a 'step-mom,' but the kids have made it clear in recent months that they consider her a 'real' mom and you can see it in the accompanying photo.

So for my mom and Char, my sister Carin, Arlene, Gram and all of the other great moms out there, have a great day with your families and thanks for everything you do for your children.
