Missing Mom

Thursday, January 20, 2011

We are here in our CA house where all of our kids grew up decluttering.
I have so many memories in this house. As I was going through many things, boxes etc. I came across some old slide pictures. They were taken when my youngest children (twins) were toddlers. It was such a blessing to find these slides. Pictures of my mom when she felt good and she always had a great sense of humor. How happy I am!!. This was the most special birthday gift I could receive. Now I'm going to try to enlarge them on my scanner and post them on my page when I return to WA in April. I have great pictures of a truly amazing woman, my mom.

    Taking walks down memory lane is the best time.....one doesn't always have the opportunity or time to enjoy their past....we can only do what is in our hearts to make these moments, as special as possible and treasure the find from this day forward. Enjoy! you memories to the fullest....they really are a special treasure.

    Glad you found those old pictures and can do something with them. So many of mine have molded due to the high humidity. Post a couple when you can.

    Jo Ann, I understand completely. No other person is so important in our lives as Mom. The slides ARE a gift, and you can treasure all the memories forever.

    I was not aware you live (part time?) in Washington. Is your mom's house in the state, too?

    You're a blessed and highly-favored woman. I believe you just received a hug from Jesus!
