My mom.......

As this is Mother's Day, I wanted to share some pictures of my Mom. She is a wonderful person, a wonderful Mom and such a special person. I really miss her. She lives in Washington state and we live in Utah. It's been a year and a half since we've seen her. My husband Mike and I are trying to move back to Oregon or Washington so that we can see her more often. I miss spending time with her. My mother loves to laugh. If I tell her something funny, she just laughs so loud. I remember a long time ago, years ago, before I was married, so over 30 years ago, one time my Mom and I went to a movie together. I think that was probably the only time we ever did go to a movie together, other than going to the drive in theater (in our pajamas) as a family.....(well, just my brother and I were in our pajamas!) Anyway, my Mom and I were watching the movie and my Mom kept laughing so loud at everything. She was laughing louder than anyone else in the theater. I was so embarrassed. My Mom just laughed at me. So I slumped down in my chair so noone would notice. Now, I look back at that and just laugh! She just was having fun and she loves life!! (That's my Dad, too!)
My mother is a musician. She sings and plays the piano, composes, directs operas (she was an Opera Singer professionally, too when she was younger......) She loves to sew, cook, make things, and just is the funnest mom ever!!
Happy Mother's Day to all mothers......and everyone who has a "mothering heart"
Here's some pictures of my Mom......her name is Barbara Poulshock.

Your mother is just beautiful! I love how she has her hand up by her face in all the pictures - such a sweet gesture! She sounds like she is a wonderful mother and I'm glad you treasure her so much. Thanks for sharing with us!
