Happy Birthday to my Mom!

Debbie and Mom with mink

This is how I always remember my mom; dressed beautifully, sitting up straight and elegant, and dressing me up, too.  I remember that mink wrap because it still had a head on it, which probably explains the look on my face.  I can’t remember a time when mom didn’t look beautiful and put together.  She sewed almost all of her own clothes, and mine, too.  And of course she was a wonderful cook.

I love this photo because we looked so happy, and mom had her ever-protective arm around me.  I always felt safe and secure with mom, and of course I thought she knew everything and could fix anything.  At 93, she still is beautiful with a sharp mind, reads a couple books a week, plays suduko, Words with Friends with several people at a time, and still dresses nicely and puts on her make-up every day.  I am one lucky daughter to have her as my mom.

Your little girl loves you very much, mom.  Happy Birthday.

    What a wonderful tribute to your mom. And your one daughter looks so much like her ! And with all the mental games she does I bet she is sharp as a tack–how lucky for you !

      Thanks, Barb. I hear all the time how much Kristina looks like my mom. There are some photos of my mom that if she didn’t have on 1930’s clothing, we thought it was Kristina!
