“Mommy, Mom, Mother, Aunt, Auntie, Grandma, Nana, Special Friend”

“A Mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” –Tenneva Jordan
 
Most all of us have a woman in our life that is our mom or that we think of as a mother figure. I am very fortunate to have a mom that has been a mentor and now a true friend. She is as much fun as my best girlfriends!  We are a generation apart but as we age the gap seems to become so minute I can hardly put my finger on it.
“Sometimes the laughter in mothering is the recognition of the ironies and absurdities. Sometimes, though, it’s just pure, unthinking delight.” - Barbara Schapiro
