Awww Monday February 8, 2016

Happy Birthday to my Mother
 
My mother with my little sister Nina
April 1965
 
The six of us had a wonderful mother-
Here she is at 42 with the youngest-
our little sister Nina.  She passed away 23 years later and a day does not go by that
 something will remind me of her.

Big thanks to Sandee for Awww Monday !!!

My mother was born on February 6. She's been gone for many years and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss her too.

A huge AWWW! Big hugs to you and my very best to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

The famous Chubby Chatterbox left me such a nice comment and BLOGGER somehow deleted it? Here it is:

So sorry you didn't have more time with your mom. I bet she was a terrific mother.

Thanks Stephen- I always appreciate your kind comments!

My mom died when I was four, too young to really have memories of her. But I still think of her often and wish she were here. Thanks for sharing!

No amount of time is long enough to be with those we love. She looks like she was a fabulous mom.
