Mother's Birthday

Today would have been our Mother's 78th birthday, so my post today is dedicated to her memory.

This playful picture was taken on January 23rd, 1949 - sixty years ago! :
And this one is from Christmas Day, 1974. I'm pretty sure she was making gravy. She was a fabulous cook.
I kind of like that tunic or jumper she has on!
Happy Birthday, Mother. You are remembered with love.

Heidi Ann,
Your Mom looked like she definitely enjoyed herself in life. May she rest in peace. Thanks for sharing your photos of her. My Mom's birthday is in the month of January also. I too, will be paying tribute to her on my blog in a few weeks.

I love to see that she has our Christmas wreath pin on! I loved her gravy (and of course her mashed potatoes). My favorite photo of her is the one at our wedding with the bouquet on her head. So cute. I am glad you remembered her on your blog. Love T

Happy Birthday to you Mother! She was very smart and a great artist and had beautiful teeth with a great smile!! Hey, maybe my crafty side came from her! Love to her and Daddy!! Lori

Happy birthday, Joyce! Heidi, I love that picture in the snow as well. And the picture where she's cooking is exactly how she lives on in my mind! She certainly was a great mother and instilled some wonderful traits in her daughters. One of them (among many) is the strong, loving bond her daughters have always shared.
