Happy Mother's Day

I am grateful to be home this Mother's Day. Too many over the past 20 years have been spent miles away from my mom.
Together with my dad, we had nice hamburger by the lake today. Then we came home and my mom made brownies. 
What's better than that?
In searching for pictures I've posted on previous blog posts, I came across writing from one Mother's Day we did spend together back in 2006. Mom and dad came to visit in New York City and I took her to see Jersey Boys. 

Read that post here. Read Part 1 here.
This is a picture of me and my mom.
This picture is my mom and her mom.
Here is a picture of the three of us in Crystal Beach before my grandmother lost her home to Hurricane Ike. My Momo has since died. Her name was Jeanette but was lovingly referred to as "Grandma cajun" by some of my friends.
Here are four generations! (I'm the one in yellow.) Jeanette, Lucille, Heather and Wanda.
My other grandmother, whom I called Na, has also passed. Here she is with my grandfather.
