As I’ve already mentioned, I’m with the Princess in Norfolk, Virginia visiting her mother on Mother’s Day. I just want to write a short post to honor all of the great mothers in my life. They are all very important to me and are a great joy in my life. Here they are…
This is my Mom taking me on my first flight in an airplane. The flight was on Delta Air Lines and we flew from Atlanta, Georgia to Tallahassee, Florida. As it turned out both of her sons became military pilots and now my younger brother is a Captain with Delta Air Lines.
Here’s the Princess, our two children and me on the flight line at Naval Air Station North Island in Coronado, California. I had just returned from a deployment to the Persian Gulf. I like this photo a lot because it represents how much she sacrificed and also how well she took care of the family during my long absences in my Navy career. I should also mention that last Friday, the Friday before Mother’s Day, was Military Spouse Appreciation Day and I love and appreciate the Princess a lot.
Here’s our daughter, Ashley, and her two sons last Halloween. The Princess and I talk about them constantly and when we’re not talking about them, we’re thinking about them. They are true bundles of energy and Ashley is a great mother to them…and a great daughter too.
Last but certainly not least, here is Jackie, my Mother-in-Law. We are very, very close and she’s terrific. She treats me like her own son.
I love them all!
