My Mom

 I realize I am breaking my vow of weekend silence, but hey, it’s for my Mom!

Lanting Family


Thanks for sticking it out

with me


for me

when I was a 7 year old laying in the hospital for 10 days,

the events completely altering your lifestyle for years

you smiled

when I was a sassy 13 year old trying to go in the wrong direction

and finding my wings

you prayed.

prayed that I would not have fun in my wayward ways,

and I didn’t

When I was 16 and in love, you approved.  I was happy.

Then at 18  you let me go to travel the world

giving me a vision and hope for my future,

Almost 20,  you stood by me at my wedding…

AND ever since, you have


sang to,


 laughed at,

prayed for,

hugged and kissed

11 1/2 Grandchildren.

You’re a Great Mom, a wonderful Grandma, and I love you!
