in honor of our moms, let's post a picture and tell a little bit about what makes them special.
This picture is very special to me - I think it was maybe HS graduation. My mom married at 39 and had me at 45, so I never knew her as a younger woman. I had never seen a picture of her at that age, just one at age 2 and the rest after she married.
She passed away from cancer when I was 9. I found this picture online when my extended family started filling in a genealogy website. Not sure who had it.
My mom loved sewing clothes for me and my sis, had a "stash" of scraps in an old dresser in the sewing room. I can still remember some of the dresses she made us, and having to "stand still" for fittings.
I made my first quilt (a doll quilt) under her guidance.
She was a great storyteller, too and a great cook. I miss you Mom!!Love ya!
