Remembering Mothers

Happy Mother's Day!

Today I remember in an extra special way my Mother and two other women I've had the joy of having in my life as bonus mothers.  My dear mother-in-law Ellie and my sweet Aunt Lu.  I no longer have the pleasure of their company in this world but I am certain they are all enjoying each other's company today and everyday in theirs . . .    : )

Me and my Mother

Mom (left) and her sister Luella, who was my second mother growing up.

Here's to you Mom . . . Thanks for your wisdom and strength. Thanks for your sense of humor and your smile. Thanks for being you.  I miss you every single day.

And here's to Aunt Lu and Ellie and to my Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers and all the mothers before them in my family's ancestry . . . thanks to all of you for giving me life. I love you.

And for my readers . . .
I hope each of you is having a wonderful day with your family.
I hope you take the time to relax and let your children do something special just for you.
I hope you get all that beautiful fabric you wished for . . . hehe . . . that's what I asked for.

Happy Mother's Day!!!
