My Mother


My mother, grandmother and me

This picture was taken long ago, but I'm thinking today about all of the good times I had with my mother. She loved to cook and entertain. My mother worked at Texas A&M University with two wonderful positions there. In spite of her busy schedule, she found time to have friends over and thought nothing of
cooking a full course Italian dinner on a whim.
My mother passed away two years ago today.

Thank you, Mother, for so many wonderful memories
and setting the bar so high.

Oh my goodness, heartwarming post and picture! I miss my Mama, 22 years in September! I loved her and talk about her and things that I learned from her almost daily! I say things like "Mama would be proud, or what would Mama do"!

Hugs coming from me on this special day of memories!

What a treasure!! I lost my mother almost 5 years ago (July 23rd) and as I can imagine is the case with you - if feels like forever ago and just yesterday. Sounds like we were both blessed with wonderful mothers.
