Happy Mother's day!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Mother's day!
This is my mom...Betty Lou.
I have told you all many many times the tragic tale of my mom....she passed away 20 days after the birth of my only child....she was willing herself to stay alive to see Selina.
She had Rheumatoid arthritis and a terminal lung disease.
She went through years of hardship bringing up my 4 siblings and a single mom.

Love was not kind to her....after divorcing my dad when I was 2 ...she had enough of men for the rest of her entire life.
She was a great mom...and I would give anything to spend one more Mother's day with her!
She loved animals!
She could play anything on the piano...all you had to do was give her the title to the song.
She was in the navy,
She was smart as a whip,
She was crafty and sewed up our dresses...after working all day as a secretary.
We had the best childhood under the circumstances.
She had a great sense of humor and we were very close.
After working so hard...she had to suffer in her last not fair.
If she were here she would have loved designing patterns with me and going to market.
She would be proud of her big family and she would have been my daughters BFF.

Please enjoy being with your mom if you can can't go back in time.....but you can remember the wonderful times.
