Today is the day . . .

... that the pretty girl in the back row is having a birthday!!...

Here she is with my dad...

Here they are with my sister and me....


Here she is years later, on what she says was one of her happiest days of her life...
Yes, that's the day Peggy and I graduated from Baylor. (Mother had to work her way through college, which took many years - and finally - when we were four years old - she got her degree from (then called) Pan American College in Edinburg, TX.)

Here she is with my dad again...


Here they are with little Will and baby Laura (my kids)...



Here she is with Laura, and Teri and Sandy at a family reunion....

Now here she is with her oldest great-grandchild, Caroline....

And with Andrew....

And with Anna...

And here she is Christmas '09....

She has always been gorgeous.

And the beauty has always been inside and out.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOTHER!!

She is so beautiful. We just talked to her to wish her a Happy Birthday, she is so wonderful. One of the most graceful, humble, joyful people on the earth.

What a beautiful woman she is. I had to laugh at your post about the happiest day of her life. I'd be happy too if I didn't have to make those payments to Baylor anymore!
