Today would have been my mom’s 87th birthday. Every so often her birthday fell on Mother’s Day, and this is one of them. She lived to be the ripe old age of 80, and we had 55 wonderful years together. Well most of them were wonderful. I’m sure she had a few that were troublesome, but not many. We were best friends.
One of the things I loved about my mother was her smile. Even after she lost all her teeth she would beam when I walked into the room, so I knew that I was the most important person in her life. I didn’t always appreciate that. For example, if I would stub my toe and gasp, my mom would be all over it, “Are you ok? Let me see!” AT 3 or 4 years of age, that’s great. At 55 I was sometimes short with her about that, but it is a blessing to have ANYONE care that the least little thing happens to you. I have to admit that she spoiled me with love beyond anyone else’s ability to live with me!!!
My mom was a happily-spoiled only child. So she knew how to spoil my brother and me.
This is Mom Pre-Marsha and Randy. 🙂
Mom took motherhood seriously, yet she was still a lot of fun. Hope you are enjoying a happy day with your favorite mother or children. Lots of love to you.
