#ThrowbackThursday Mothers, Mentors, Role Models & Friends

I was very lucky to have a mom who was not only an amazing role model, mentor and mother, she was an awesome friend. In the year before she passed, I was able to work with her and get to spend a great deal of time with her. She taught me the importance of hard work and following my dreams, although she never really got why I wanted to be a writer. Still, it was the drive that she instilled in me that moved me to pursue what I wanted. I hope I have been all of these things to my very best friend, my daughter Samantha.

#ThrowbackThursday Sharing Birthday Babies

OMG, I can’t believe it’s Thursday already! I hope you are all having a great week so far. I had a special day on Monday – another birthday – and I share it with lots of people. Hubby for starters. He’s younger than I am by hours. A best friend’s daughter and a work friend’s daughter. Last, but not least, my nephew and godson shares that special day.

Today’s throwback is a picture of him with my daughter many years ago! What cuties and they both are still gorgeous if I must say so myself.
