My Mom

I usually re-post this blog post each Mother's Day. I know I'm like many of you that have lost your Mom's.  But we still hold them close our your hearts! So Mom, even though you never, ever liked much attention you deserve it. I love the pictures of you. Happy Mother's Day!

Born and raised in Temple, Texas, she loved her beloved state of Texas and its bluebonnets.

I didn't find most of these pictures until after she had passed away. She had a tough life. This is an old school picture of my Mom.

Her Dad made a living driving a gas truck. That is him on the right with the hat, and my Mom on top of the truck.

Another one of the few pictures I have of her.

I love this picture, it's one of my very favorites.

My Mom moved out to sunny southern CA, and met my Dad. That's me in my Mom's lap.

My Mom was so excited when her first grandchild, Brande was born.  She passed away two days after my first grandbaby, Riley was born.  She never got to hold her, but once she knew she had arrived in this world of ours safely and healthy, she let go. I'm thinking of her this week-end, and even though I "know" the chaos and confusion of my family now, with my own four little grandbabies, would make her crazy, she's still smiling down on us all.

Sue, your mom was a beautiful woman and her hair...gorgeous! Those curls and dimples remind me of my Bella.
I think I read once here on your blog she never really lost her Texas twang. Goes to prove you can the girl outta Texas, but you can't take Texas outta the girl.
Happy Mother's Day!

Your mom was beautiful with her precious dimple. I miss my own mother so very much.

May has been a month full of precious memories.

Hugs to you my beloved.
