Today is Mother's Day and my Mother has been gone over four years now. There's hardly a day goes by that I don't think about her. Sometimes something comes up and for a "mili-second" a flash goes through my mind that I need to call her and tell her what I've heard or seen!
These days I often think of how much my Mother would have loved my granddaughter, Harper. She loved my own two children(her only grandkids) so very much and she and my Daddy would have
been thrilled to have lived long enough to see Harper!
Mother was a Godly mother who worked hard to provide everything she could for her two daughters.
She cooked from scratch, cleaned house, ironed every thing we wore and sewed two of every dress we owned! Sister and I had some of the cutest little clothes you could have worn in the 1950's. I still have a couple of them today that I have saved. Then she made Kelly many little dresses which we have actually tried on Harper!
She was a Sunday school teacher, Brownie leader, attended PTA and we were always in church! She was the original SAHM !! To help pay for our college, she went to work when I was in high school but still worked hard at home. I am so thankful for all she did for us!
You never get over missing your Mama!
I love these old pictures when she was young!
My Mom was about 32 years old here and Daddy was 33 years old. I am the baby in the middle.
Mother always dressed my sister and I just alike. Some thought we were twins!
My Mom and Daddy always loved for Kelly and Chris to come visit!
This was my mother with her daughters and her sister with her daughter.
Left to right: My cousin Janice, her mother Willa Mae (my mom's sister), Kelly (with dark hair),
my sister Linda, Mom and me. My aunt has been gone many years too. We miss her as well.
Thank you Lord for such a wonderful Mother! We miss her but we were very blessed!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you!
