Not everyone is a mother, but we all have (had) one. Then there are surrogate mothers, step-mothers (many get a bad rap) and just unintended mothers.
Sherry’s mama was a genius in her ability to save and be conservative. No one ever had a better mother-in-law than I had. She seemed to be able to handle life better than most. For many years she raised a family of seven kids in a three room house. Sherry’s mama spent her early childhood under a single parent, while living in a converted Tobacco barn.
So I have been blessed with mother figures. I hope I never get to the point I forget that Sherry was raised and taught by such a mama. My wife and the mother of our boys is an extremely good mother. Her boys adore her, and place her up with the moon and stars (and she deserves it).
A southern tradition was on Mother’s day if your mother was a live you wore a red rose (flower), if she was deceased you wore a white flower. I was always proud to pin on the red rose in my youth.
HAPPY BELATED MOTHER’S DAY to all your mothers and to your mothers.
I remember seeing my mama in a 1941 Chevy, My first memory of her in a car.
I love old pics - Happy Mother's Day to Sherry (and you, too, Jack)
Happy Mother's Day, Jack & Sherry. Thanks to Kenecon, I got to talk to Mom today :) And...to IrmaNee, my "other Mother", she sang "You are my Sunshine" ~ it was so sweet :) Hugs from Chobee, Glenda
I had Mother's Day all week-end with one daughter and son-in-law on Saturday and with the other two today. I was treated like a queen even though the subject of the razor strap came up. lol
HAPPY MOTHER's Day. Hope Sherry had a wonderful celebration. Mothers are the key to life. None of us would be here without them.
Happy Mother's Day Sherry! I know you are an awesome mom and spouse :) Mothers are just the greatest out there, aren't they? And sometimes we don't appreciate our moms until they are gone, then we really miss them :)
Truly enjoyed my first Mother's Day as a grandmother :)
Years ago most every mother at church would be sporting a corsage of some sort of flower, but that has changed too and I didn't see one at church yesterday. Times do change but moms remain the same I'm thinking. My flowers were in the way of a hanging basket and pot of flowers for the porch.
For sure, you two were most blessed! Love the photo of Jack, Jr. holding his baby brother. :)
I'd not those of the red or white corsages/boutineers in a long time. We must've been real poor in New Mexico, on account those flowers were carnations. LOL!
What a great tribute to Moms! Even though some can not and have not been a Mother, One thing for sure is "we all have or had one".
Funny you mentioned the flowers. As I sat in church on Mothers Day, I looked around and saw only One little old lady in the back wearing her white corsage. I wonder why that tradition has faded? I remember mom pinning one on all of us on Mothers Day. Red to honor our Mother and White for remembrance. I'm glad some still remember those days.
I thought about Sherry on Mothers Day hoping she had a good one!!!
