72 Years Young



My mother's birthday is today. She is 72, and now lives in New Ulm with my step-father! Life has brought her full circle. This past year she was diagnosed with breast cancer. With the help of a wonderful surgeon at MD Anderson, and a mininum of radiation, she lives clear of cancer today. I thank God for His everlasting mercy, and for another year with my mother.

Sweet and lovely!
I did one of these magazine "covers" almost two years ago, of my 4 Irish nephews. I printed it for them as a gift. Will you print this one for your Mom? :)))))))
