My memories of my Mother are so sweet. My Mom was a stay at home Mom who worked so hard raising four daughters. She was the kind of mother who would stay up late at night sewing something special for us to wear the next day. She made school clothes, prom dresses, Easter dresses and anything else we needed and/or wanted.
We had big breakfasts every morning and a full sit down dinner every night. No fast food for us. (Of course, back then, there weren't alot of fast food places.)
Her Mom - my Nana - came to live with us when I was in the first grade. What a blessing she was. Nana did gorgeous handwork of all kinds and was always eager to show us how she did what she did.
So, I have a fantastic heritage of "Moms" and just hope I'm half the Mom they both were.
To honor my Mom, I started a collection in my hall way of vintage Mother plaques. They are kind of hard to photograph because of the narrow hall and no way to stand back and get a good picture.
I also know so many sweet, dear friend who would have made the most awesome Mothers but for some reason did not have children. But, these friends are the ones who "mother" others with advice and comfort. So, I honor all of them also.
And then, there are the Mothers raising children who are not their biological children. I admire them so much and know the Lord has great rewards for them.
So, here's hoping all of these wonderful women have a fantastic day.
Blessings to you all!
