Excuse the boys in their skivies & me before make-up &my hair brushed...it was so bad I came back to edit this post w/a smiley over my head! (The tiny bed is the bed in Parker's room and I slept w/him the night before because he was restless.) Look at that great breakfast, on fine china & crystal!
The "Dear Mother" picture that I used in my Mother's Day decor this year has been in the family for ages. On the back of the picture written in faint pencil reads, "From Mildred & Jessie, May 10, 1942." Mildred & Jessie are my late grandparents. They gave the framed print to my grandfather's mother for Mother's Day. It feels special to be able to display it some 68 years later.
Mom, I wished you were here today. We visited your graveside today. The almost five years you have been gone seem like an eternity. I hope you knew how much we all loved you so!
All happy greetings
And wishes unmeasured
To a very dear Mother
Who'll always be treasured!
