She is a faithful reader of this blog...God bless her.
She has never left a comment.
But that's alright.
She tells me what she thinks via e-mails.

Born in Cuba, her children call her Mami, the grandkids, Abuela.

Her name is Ruth.
And she raised seven marvelous children.

And I was fortunate enough
to marry her middle child

 Mr. Twig, ever at her side.

This Mother's Day, I want to honor my favorite follower of all,
my Mother-in- Law Love, Ruth.

 (Our wedding day, 2007)

Your family loves you.
Your children love you.
Your son loves you.
And I love you.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi Anne:
I'm sure Ruth is going to love your post. The only thing missing is YOU in the wedding picture! ;-P
Even so, all the photos are wonderful.

Anne, love seeing old photos. They bring back memories of my own youth. Funny how a period of time can look so similar in someone else's home. Lovely tribute to your MIL.

What a beautiful post. I think this is one of the most beautiful, thoughtful, sweet posts I have ever read. You are obviously a beautiful person to see the beauty in another and write such a lovely thing. I think you are blessed to have each that you wrote this and what a wonderful collection of photos to share also.

Such a lovely tribute and is very telling of what kind of person you must be. I am thinking your Ruth is thinking how lucky she is to have you in her life.
