Just thinking of Mother

My mother has many things about her that are special, but two things are very special to me – her voice and her smell. I have loved those two things all my life.

I must have loved her voice even before I was born. She is now 92 years old and while she has some memory loss and doesn’t look the same as she once did, when I call her on the phone I still love hearing her voice. It is a happy, optimistic sound and always filled with love. Mother 001

Some of her things are at my home now for safe keeping and sometimes I open the drawer of her dresser just to get the fragrance of her smell. I am never disappointed.Mother 002

While raising her children, she had a way of making the small things fun and making little seem like much.

She was raised in poverty herself, but she was never poor.

God has taught me that no matter how long we live, if we keep the things that are special to those we love, we are never old. May God continue to bless you, Mother!Nanny & Santa 2012

    I love you Mother. Nanny is amazing. Her optimism and happiness hold a special place in my life. I am so thankful to have a Mother who is still my life line. The fact that you love your mother the way you do is one of the reasons I love you so much. Thank you for all you are to me and my family.
