    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!

    What a lovely find. Your mom was a very attractive woman. My mother loves to tell stories too. She moved in with me about six years ago after my father passed. Here is a photo of them on their wedding day.

    A picture of my mom with my youngest son taken 9 yrs ago. She has been gone for 5 1/2 yrs now. She died of inflamitory metasticized breast cancer. There is only one mam. It saddens me that especially my children do not have her in their life.

    What a beautiful mothers. Keep posting pictures in their honor for mother's day.

    Here we are in 2008. Mom is the shorty in the front with the walking stick. She has gone down a lot since then and doesn't get around much any more.

    The Japanese lady is my "sister". She came as a foreign exchange student in 1988 and ended up staying. The little guy in the shades is my youngest son! He has grown so much --he is 6 feet tall now! I'm in the polka dots. The back row is my husband, my daugher and my dad.

    This is my Mom with her 7 children and about 3/4 of her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. This picture was taken after my Dad's funeral in March.

    Mom taught me all the sewing arts, and always set a good example of proper behavior. She taught me about family, starting genealogy in the 1950s before most people knew what it was. We waded through weeds in old cemetaries, getting chiggers, looking for her grandparents grave markers (we found them!). Mom taught me that there is a big difference between challenges and problems, and that both are easier to deal with when you are smiling. I love her a bunch.

    Most of the fam-damily

    This is my Momma. She passed away Thanksgiving Day 2007. She was my full-time Mom, my friend, my confidant, my teacher, my Sister in Christ, my 4-H leader & band booster. She married my Daddy when they were both 18 and they were married 26 years at the time of his death in 1981. She never remarried. She raised 2 boys & 1 girl, helped raise her 2 grandsons. She now has 1 great-grandson, born June 2010. We miss her dearly and are forever grateful to have had such a wonderful & special Mom.

    Every Mother is beautiful!!!

    I love my Mom and wouldn't trade her for anyone in this world. We haven't always gotten along, but we have become closer over the last couple of years and getting closer everyday.

    This is her favorite pic to share of herself.

    These are my only living Grandparents, my mom's parents. They took care of my sister and I when mom was sick and in the hospital for three months, so dad could work.

    My Mom passed on in 1960 but she is the one who really inspired me at an early age to start sewing. I have a few of her hand pieced quilts that are quite old. I'm afraid to touch them much for fear they will start coming apart. I think of her very often and miss her dearly even after so many years. Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms out there and have a splendid day with your families. (This picture was taken circa 1946 when I was about 5 yo)

    This is my Mom in the early 1040"s, I was born in 1947. She was the best mom in the world, always humming a tune as she worked, even though she worked very hard. She made many quilts with lots of applique' (her favorite), which I have most of (my older rother and her grandchildren all have at least one quilt). She raised 3 kids by herself; she was divorced when we were very small. Our dad was not part of our life growing up, but she raised 3 happy, healthy kids who all have her creative talents. She went to be with her Lord 3 1/2 years ago and I miss her every day.

    This is a picture of my mom, she passed away June 10, 2006 at the age of 94. I still miss her! She was the mother of 9, worked our small farm with my dad, and still found time to do for others! Being the middle child, we bonded the most, as she was the middle child amongst her siblings. God, if you could put your arm around her on Mother's Day, and tell her how much I love her and miss her!
    Happy Mother's Day mom, RIP!
