Happy Mother's day to all!

This is me and my mom....wish I didn't look so grumpy!
She was beautiful!
She was so talented: a great cook, a great sewer, she could talk about anything and could convince you it was true, she took care of us five children even when the chips were down, she was always laughing, everyone loved to be around her, she was a great secretary, she love animals, she played the piano like no one I knew.  She never hugged, but you knew you were loved.  She would have died for us.
 Sadly she passed away 12 years ago....smoking destroyed her lungs.  I miss her alot, my daughter was only 20 days old....I believe my mom used sheer will to make it and see my only child.  If your mom is still with you....give her a never know when you can never hug again.


  1. Thanks for sharing! I'm glad you had a good mom too!

  2. Your words are so true. My mom is 86 and complains so much, but I've learned to be patient and just listen. That's what she really wants, someone to hear her and understand. She wasn't much of a nurturer as we were growing up but we do hug now. Glad your mom was a keeper.
