Happy Mother's Day this Sunday! This is a special Flashback Friday post to honor my mom.

 Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

This is my mom Marian when we first moved to Madagascar in the late 1950s. Cool glasses, mom.

Morning routine for mom, a cup of coffee and braiding my hair, when I was about three. She was really into very short bangs back then, so stylish, right?

Dad took this photo of us in the living room of our house in Madagascar. No electricity, no running hot water, no telephones and no TV. All we had was love. How did you manage, mom, washing everything by hand and heating water on the stove every time we needed a bath?

We lived on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean at the southern tip of the island. Right outside our window was the most beautiful view of the bluest body of water you could imagine.
