Mother's Day Weekend
Happy Mother's Day Weekend. I salute my mother. She's been gone since 1992 - alas - stomach cancer. She was super healthy, teeny tiny, never drank, never smoked, and yet............dang........
what can you do?
She's still a force in my brain. Oh she could move fast. Somehow I always think of her hanging up laundry in our backyard. Those trees are gone, but the clothes line hung just so, and the sheets wafted in the wind.
She loved breakfast...but late. Never a true morning person. She drank tea, not coffee, and ate Tasty-kakes - the chocolate ones. (A Philly product, also - Pudge's cheesesteak sandwiches - yum)
She loved Christmas, stuffed animals, and always made our birthdays special.
She would have gotten a huge kick out of her grandkids (Lisa and Jeff), and Ray's boys - Chris and Kevin and their kids - Abby, Makyla, Skylar, and one on the way - Dakota. Treats for all
Happy Mother's Day Weekend everyone. I hope you are celebrated and remember your mothers and your grandmothers.
