Have I told you about My Mother?
She was….a square dance lover with her cherished partner in life, my Dad.
She was….the best listener and most non-judgemental person I have ever known.
She was….my daughters’ Nana and their biggest fan.
She was….so smart, and strived to keep learning new things all of her life.
She was….slim, trim and always fashionable even when finances were tight.
She was….the person I called when I had the most exciting news, and when I had the saddest.
She was…. adventurous and always up for anything.
She was…. interested in politics and loved Olympia Snowe.
She was…..the most gracious, warm and welcoming hostess into her home.
She was…..a lover of babies, and was there to help each and every one of us when we brought new babies into this world. My husband cried when she left to go home after our babies were born.
She was…..the maker of the best homemade wheat rolls around.
She was…..the person who believed I could do anything.
She was…..the wearer of the ring I now treasure.
She was….gentle but strong.
She was..my North star.
She was My Mother
So thankful a part of her is always with me….I just know for sure that it’s not the fashionable part!
Love you, Mom.
Your daughter xo
