I just want to wish all of my bloggy friends a Happy Mother's Day -
and a belated Happy Mothering Sunday to my friends in the UK.
This cute picture is of "Honey" (my grandmother) and Grandad
and their 6 children.
My Dad is the tallest one in this picture.
It was 1954.
She was an amazing woman.
Even though she was busy with 6 kids, she still had time to be very active in local politics.
She had a citywide newsletter, "SCOOP."
I think if she were still alive, Scoop would be a blog!
She was a voice of the people at every single city council meeting.
A short while before she died, she inducted me into her "Turtle Club."
She said, "to be in the turtle club means you can take the heat and the criticism - just let it roll off you back."
And then she gave me her very own turtle pin,
... and then we ate some chocolate turtles.
