I'm a Mother.....

and a I'd like to think - a darn good one - thanks to my Mom.
She taugh me how to be tough - yet gentle;
Strong - yet sensitive;
Persistent - yet patient;
Stern - yet flexible;
Serious - yet fun; and
Assertive - yet oh so responsive.

She taught me without "teaching" me.  She taught me just by "being."
My mom taught me by being the smart, kind, gentle, tough, funny, loyal and amazing Daughter, Wife and Mother that she was and still is - for she forever lives in me. 
My Great Grandma Mary,
 My Gram, Wanda and my Mom


Happy Mother's Day Mom -
We all love and miss you so.

Thank you for making me who I am -
and through me, making Sabrina who
she will someday become.
