It's been 40 years since the day we were married and now we find ourselves in Chicago - yep that's Bill standing by Robert Indiana's Hope statue - Why are we traveling to the windy city in the beginning of December?? A very special reason -our son Jon was to be married 12/3/11 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago. Our hope for him and his bride - as we built our extended family from US and Japan - is that they will have all of the love, caring, compassion and communication - those strong gifts that will guide their marriage to thrive!! I am proud to be the "American Mummy" and also know that I will be patient and respectful as we build our relationship. We have a lifetime - and that is totally special.
Remember - Love and Hope go together
to build a life!!
