Happy Birthday Mom!

Last summer on Mom's birthday. .
I invited her over to make the potato salad for the book.
While she was busy cutting. .
I was busy taking photos of her.
I see beautiful . .
where she sees the evidence of years of painful arthritis.

Her great grands love her just as her first generation grands did.
They call. . .."Oma!!". . .when she walks in the door.

Always beautiful. .
always giving. .
and always loving. .
and still the best potato salad maker in the land!

Happy Birthday Mom!!

To all my American neighbors. .
Happy 4th of July!
