I have the best "Mommy" in the whole world. My sister, Joanne, and I have always called her Mommy. It sounds kind of funny coming from two 60 something girls, but that is who she will always be to us. Her name is Marion and she is 86 now and not in the best of health. But, she still lives alone across the street from my sister in Florida. I miss not getting to be with her more but I call her two times a day to see how she is. She is the kindest, sweetest and most loving woman. I do not think that I could have been born to a better mom than her. She has led an exemplary life to me. I know that her mom, my Grandma Jennie was also a wonderful woman and my Mommy must have gotten her goodness from her. My mom and grandma are 100% Swedish descent and that makes me 50% Swedish, a badge I proudly wear. If there is anything at all of goodness in me, it is because of my "Mommy". Happy Mother's Day and I love you!
