My mom is gone 15 years today . I miss her . I know she is happy with the Lord and that makes me happy because she had some terrible sadness in her life . She had a child like spirit and a twinkle in her eyes [ pretty blue eyes ] and she could still laugh and give people hugs !
I'm not a hugger .... I wish I was . I took after my father in that way .
But today I am thinking of her . She taught me about God , sang silly songs, taught me to knit and sew , she encouraged me with my art , she would gently touch my face and tell me I was beautiful .
So today I walked in my own backyard and thought of her . I found beauty in my own back yard .
I would love to post a photo of her . One of those great photos from the forties when she was young and in love and happy
But for now I will post the leaves in my yard , which is perfect because the fall was her favorite time of year .
