My Mom…

Mom◊ was a great cook. Her fried chicken was the best in the world. Yes, world. And her banana pudding…there aren’t words. Baking powder biscuits, pork chops, salmon patties, and the list goes on.

◊ was an inventive decorator…she knew pretty. And there wasn’t anything she wouldn’t tackle. She could sew, paint, knock out walls, reupholster, and crochet. I’m not talking doilies, she crocheted full-length tablecloths. They were exquisite. And mom was a repurposing queen long before it became a fad.

◊ was a smart business woman. She bought and sold our homes always upgrading in the process. My dad didn’t make much as a milkman but somehow our mother figured out ways to make it work so we always had what we needed and more.

◊ was a sturdy woman of faith. Mom loved Jesus of that there was no doubt. She loved God’s Word. She was a woman of prayer. She was generous and forgiving. And she gave motherhood all the energy and love she had.

Thank you mom.

    You were blessed indeed such fond memories, I often think of our loved ones staring into the eyes of Jesus, up until the time they turn around and see is standing beside them. Until heaven….

    What a blessing to have such a wonderful Mom! My Mama was wonderful, too. She went to be with the Lord in 2013, one week before her 92nd birthday. She and Daddy were the most loving, caring, awesome parents. Mama gave me her love of reading and I am thankful for that. She and Daddy both loved gardening and hummingbirds, too. Happy Mother’s Day Patsy!

    I called her Grandma Rebecca!
    Thanks for the memories Aunt Patsy, I still miss her and dream about her. Taking care of her in her old age was one of the great honors and privileges of my life.
