Happy Mother’s Day!
I wanted today to pay homage to the woman who raised me. I woke up thinking about her this morning and found this photo in some old ones. I wanted to share. This picture was taken before she became a mother (hence no wrinkles or gray hair) in San Antonio as a newly wed to my handsome father. I’m not sure who the other person is and it is obvious they are drinking 7-Up (uh huh) and having a good time.
She was a stay-at-home mother for the most part, working some part time hours when we were in school. She cooked, cleaned, sewed and dressed her three daughters in ruffles and bows making sure they had music lessons and learned to swim. She even taught us to keep house and make our own clothing as soon as we began to complain about the ruffles.
The second picture is of the two little darlings who made me a mother many years later. They’ve changed a bit since the picture was taken. I love them both more than anything in the world. They are stable human beings who make a good living for themselves and their families and appear to be happy. What more could any mother want?
Well, I woke up this morning to hubby’s homemade cinnamon rolls and he is grilling a steak out at noon between the rain drops. Life is good.
