Happy Mother's Day Weekend (My Three Kids)
I've been looking through old slides (I used to love taking slide photographs with a 35mm camera in the 70's) and came across this adorable photo of my three kids when they were very young. This photo is from 1976. I had sent a copy of this particular photo to Dennis in California when he worked for the Wagners. He told me he had showed it to Natalie and she commented on what an adorable photo it is. Dennis and I always stayed in touch while he worked for the Wagners, and I remember him telling me that if I brought the kids to L.A., we could all make a trip to Knotts Berry Farm along with Natalie's daughters. I wish I had made that trip but I never did.
From left to right: Billy (7), Jeannine (almost 2), and Matt (almost 4). They are all older now with children of their own. I am so grateful that I have had my life to grow with them, enjoy them, and to be a part of their childrens' lives. That is something Natalie Wood was robbed of. No one deserves to be robbed of the opportunity to grow with and to enjoy your children.
To ALL mothers out there, I wish you a wonderful Mother's Day weekend... Yes, it's a WEEKEND...you shouldn't be cooking from today until Monday :-)
Enjoy family....even Natalie Wood knew it's the most important thing in life!
