By day I'm Super Grandma and by night and weekends I'm Super Crafter. TaDa!
I'm dedicating this post to Mom this Mother's Day. Please excuse the mushy.
Me 'n Mom
Mom you are fun. I remember you dressing up to go to parties with Dad. I loved seeing you dressed and sometimes gave me a fashion show. You and Dad loved to give each other secret gifts that I didn't understand at the time, but I do now. You had fun helping me learn to sew when I was in the Girl Scouts. You jumped in with me when I was learning to skate and ride a bicycle. I loved you making snow cream. You had fun with your friends when you were learning to decorate cakes and I loved testing the results. I loved the mini-trips we took when we lived in Germany. You always had/have fun at family reunions visiting with everyone. You delighted in cooking, which was cool to me. You were fun when the two of us travel to the Biltmore Estates for a day of culture. Mom you are fun.
My Sister 'n Mom
Mom you are loving. You've always loved us kids even when we tested the boundaries, which was more than once. When I fell and hurt myself you always kissed my boo-boo. I remember falling off my bicycle and falling into gavel embedding it into my knee. You felt so bad trying to clean me up while I screamed. When it was over you held me and I knew you loved me. You created and planned my wedding with such care and love. You became a Registered Nurse and cared for others with passion. You love your mom with unending love and your brothers and sisters are often the center of your world. You always take such loving care of all of them. You care and love the world around you. Mom you are loving.
Me 'n Mom
Mom you are talented. Oh my goodness. What can't you do? You make drapes, recover furniture, restore old wood work. You sew anything you wanted to and your pride and joy are your incredible quilts. You are a Master cook. I can't wait to have you cook next time your here. Matter-of-fact the whole family can't wait! You can knit, crochet and learning to tatting. You grow the most beautiful flowers and your can grow potatoes, peas, and okra with the best of them. Mom you are talented.
Mom you are beautiful. No joke or just because I'm your daughter. Dad knew you were the most beautiful woman in the world. I always felt great pride introducing you to my friends. You've always lived beautifully. Mom you are beautiful.
Mom I love you. Here's a bit of an excerpt from a book I read to my Jay when he was little:
"The son went to his mother.
He picked her up and rocked her
back and forth, back and forth,
back and forth.
and he sang this song:
"I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my Mommy you'll be."Mom I love you.
Happy Mother's Day!
