May and Mothers Day

Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever. ~Author Unknown


Thinking of my mother .......she would have been 106 today if she were still alive. She has been gone for 17 years and I miss her terribly everyday. If she were here, I would like to ask her many questions that didn't seem important 20 or 30 years ago. She was a part of a rapidly changing history and I would love to know more about her personal history.
One thing I remember about my mother is that she never complained about anything - never! She lived through the depression, the Second World War, many moves, widowhood and the last two years coping with a stroke and dementia. Yet she never complained.

And I am also thinking of my three daughters and the tremendously great job they do as mothers to my 12 grandchildren. I am proud of each one and thank God for Blessing me with them. My quiver is full!

My Mother loved to read and in her honor I have created two bookmarks that you can download and print. They are 2" x 8.5",

Thanks for looking - I would love to read your comments! 
Happy Mothers Day!

Your mother will always be with you in your memories as will mine. In fact sometimes when I look in the mirror I could swear it was her looking back. God bless you and your family
