A Tribute to A Precious Woman - My Mother

It was MY MOTHER who:

- baked the most beautiful heart shaped sponges topped with pink icing
decorated with a freshly picked red rose,

- allowed me the pleasure of sitting up on the kitchen bench to watch and
stir and lick the spoon,

- knitted and sewed on the tredle sewing machine when she could fit it in,

- sewed the best hessian sleeping bag lined in red check cotton for me to
nap in the afternoon at kindergarten,

- pushed me in the pusher on my first day of school (how embarassing!)

- played tennis, made clay pots and who loved to square dance!

- would sacrifice her face cream so that we could have Easter eggs one year,

- made my first pretty dress for the teenage club,

- queed to buy 5 tickets for my friends to see the "Beatles" perform live
(and who came to the concert with us and loved it as much as we),

- never owned a car but walked long distances to shop,

- loved and played Bob Dylan on vinyl many times in my late teens,

- taught me how to LOVE, to SHARE, to SHOW COMPASSION, and

But tragically and sadly this faded all too suddenly after 18 quick years -
far too soon to be free of her abiding love for me!!!!

I will treasure her love always and always!!!! 

Happy Mothers Day to all my blogging friends!

  10. You look very much like her. From the date you put as her birth date, I would guess that she had you later in life. This tells me that she was a mature and loving mother, who nurtured your creativity. She did a good job with the time she had.
