Yes, that's Thor and his weapon! I love Thor, can I watch those movies repeatedly. I took this picture at a recent exhibit of Marvel comics at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. It was a fun outing with my, soon to be 40 year old, son who wanted this for his birthday (museum trip).
Back in the "old days" I was a pastors wife...no, kidding, I really was. Anyway, we had a very old woman (100 yr and she had stories to tell) in our congregation, every mother's day she cried because she lost the only child she bore. My ex-husband, the pastor would recognize various women, the oldest, youngest, most children, etc. and it always bothered me that we celebrate mothers, without regard for the MANY (!) women who have tried to conceive and can't. It's painful to many. Being a mother is about the heart, the nurturing spirit held by every woman, more than producing something from the uterus. Happy Mothers day to each of you.
