|Me, sister Ruthann, my Mom, and sister Jan|
Today is my mom's birthday. I wish she was still here to share my life with. My mom was the driving force behind me that made me a good seamstress, which led to my love of quilting. My goal was to sew clothes that she thought I bought. I fooled her many times.
It is often difficult for me to get past the last two months of her life which were a nightmare of hospital procedures, tests and complications. Sometimes all of that is still so raw. But that was just two months of an eighty eight year life, and I want to focus on moving beyond the last two months, and thinking of the good times.
This post will not be biographical, I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge her life. I wish we could go to breakfast and order eggs benedict and then grab a McDonalds chocolate sundae together.
