Here are a few things you should know about my Mom:
*She loves her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids a lot!!
*She knows all 100+ by name and has made at least one quilt for each, sometimes two or three, depending on their age.
*She's addicted to fabric stores and quilts.
*She a clothes horse, fashionista, shoe-aholic. When she comes to visit me we always have to ship a very large box back home with her shopping treasures.
I submit the following picture as proof of her love of style.
This picture was taken one week after I was born--1948. Who looks like that one week post giving birth? BTW--her legs still look like that. See next picture for proof.
*She's 86 and doesn't look it or act it.
*She is ALWAYS cheerful ,positive, flexible, gracious, grateful--you get my drift.
*As a mother raising 7 kids she was strict, bossy, very noisy, creative, hard working, loyal, I could go on and on. She joined the church at age 18 and gave our family that legacy with all the blessings that go with it.
So, I salute you Mom and send my love and admiration. I want to be just like you when I grow up (maybe not as noisy). I am trying to emulate your courage and strength. Thanks for teaching me so much good stuff. (See, she's pretty cute)
