Happy Mother’s Day!

This is my first Mother’s Day that I am celebrating without a visit with my mother. I can still remember the first store-bought Mother’s Day Gift we gave our Mom. Dad gave us some money to go uptown and buy her a gift. “Uptown” consisted of a hardware store, a grocery store, and a convenience store, so we searched and finally came home with what we thought was the best choice for Mom. It was a small ceramic figurine of a skunk with real fur on the tail. When she looked at it she would always remember the spring that she got sprayed by a skunk! She loved it and thought it was the perfect gift.

mom and me yesterday

My mother-in-law is a special person as well, after my mom passed away last summer she had a memorial stone made for me with mom’s poem on it.
