It's my Mother's 67th Birthday!

Wow! I remember when she turned thirty. I was ten. It seems like

it was just two days ago.

Well, I have committed to listing 10 great things about
Mother, just as I did for my father.
I have been mulling these over since I posted my dad's.

These are wonderful things that I love about my mom:

1) When I was little she took me to church.
2) She always juggled having 4 kids so very well. She always made it look easy.
That gave me the courage to have a large family.
3) She is an excellent seamstress. She sews beautifully.
4) She is always game to try a new recipe. Coca Cola Cake is still one of my favs.
5) Her fruit salad is the best in the whole wide world!
6)She has always loved my daddy. He has been dead for 35 years. I think she still misses him.
7)She taught me to not gossip.
8)She allowed us to have pets in the house when I was growing up. Yay!
9)When my daddy worked graveyard shift, she would always have his meal prepared for him and waiting when he got home. That was after cleaning, sweeping and mopping the whole house every single night.
10)She braved single parenthood and survived it. All of her children are productive members of society.

Great job Mom!
Happy Birthday.
I miss you.
I love you.
