Around the House


 A perfect imprint of a fallen leaf on the concrete...
 All of the branches of the honey locusts are bare...
I am crafting...

Thinking about my Mom.  Tomorrow it will be 30 years since I lost her.  Two weeks before I had our son Mikey.  I was thirty, Mike will be thirty in two weeks...Unbelievable how quickly time passes.  Missing Mom is just a part of me now.  Having Mikey to take care of was a blessing to me and my Dad who was lost after Mom left us.  Grateful I had the kind of Mom mine was.  Kind and generous, talented and quick to laugh.  Beautiful inside and out.  The sweetest Grandma to our kids, and a  kind and loving Mother to my hubby.  Remembering a million happy memories.  October will always be hard...

Anniversary dates are so hard. My dad's anniversary date of his passing was last week; a friend's son today; my mother-in-law on Friday. I hope you can find some peace and comfort in the wonderful memories of your mother.

Those tea towels with the birds and Ball jars are amazingly beautiful! Love the colors (and I love birds and Ball jars, too). Sending you extra hugs for this week.

So sorry you're struggling this month. I think we both feel the same way about our mothers:) I lost mine right around St. Patrick's Day so that time of year is always hard for me (esp. because I'm Irish and my family usually celebrated...only now I get sad).
Love those pretty tea towels!

You were blessed to have such a wonderful mother. You lost her so early. So gladyou have thoses memories.
I love those towels......you are so creative.
Trying to destress here, its nit working, hah. I take one step forward and then two backwards. Having faith helps. Nothing too serious thank goodness.
