Happy Mother’s Day

It is Mother’s Day 2011 and I thought I would briefly write a thank you to my mom and my grandmothers. I am so lucky to have your constant positive support to help me along the way. Your love and compassion have made me who I am today. I try to live each day the way you have taught me to, by enjoying the moment and looking forward to the future. Thanks for always supporting me, mom and Nain.

Helen (Mom), Aunt Marcia, Nain, and Me (Halibut Cove, Alaska, summer 2010)

In loving memory of Audrey Barnwell.

  1. Of course I think Helen, aka “mama” “mom” is the best. I always remember her leading you and Heidi around…I called her the mother duck because it reminded me of the mama with her two babies trailing behind. But, also I called her “mama grizzly” (please, no Palin comparisons), because she always stuck up for you and Heidi no matter what! I love the photo of Helen and her mom and sisters…they are all great women and mothers.

  2. I love that picture of Anna and Heidi with Audrey. Hard to believe that was the last time they saw her and that she had lung cancer as she looks pretty darn good in that photo. Audrey never did look her age, that’s for sure! Thanks for posting those photos, Anna, and your kind words.
