a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Yesterday...

was Mom's birthday.  She would have been eighty-three, young for today's standards.  After all this time, I still miss her.
Mom loved flowers,
gardening,
quilting,
and
all of us.
I hope she is proud of me,
I never really knew.

In my experience mums are always proud of their children even when sometimes they don't deserve it so I'm sure your mum would be the same.

You must have felt loved to have loved your mom and to miss her. Where there is love, there is pride for our children, I believe.

Nice remembrance.

Melissa said...

Mom's are always proud of us, no matter what we do. I'm sorry about your mother though.

Have you noticed that women of that generation seemed to like marigolds, zinnias, roses...Monday would have been my Grandmother's b'day...she would have been...hhhmmm...111...guess that's why she's not here...and Mom's been gone since 1986......we miss them forever, don't we...

Of what I know of you, if you were my daughter, I would be so proud and thrilled to call you not only daughter but friend. You are so sweet to do this tribute to your Mom....proof is in the love. The Olde Bagg

Oh sweetie, ya know she was proud of you...how could she not be??? Where there is a mother's love you find a mother's pride. I bet she's lookin' down at you right now bustin' her buttons tellin' those around her...that's my girl!!!

What a lovely tribute to your dear Mama, wonderful pics too but what else is new??? Heeehehe!

Enjoy your day girl and may it be filled with warm fuzzy blessings!!!! :o)

Lovely pictures....they go great with your post. Your Mom loved you...she was proud of you...they go hand and hand.

Sounds like your mom was like mine, she really never showed any emotion at anything I did so I never knew if she was proud or not. I came to realize that she might be hardening me up to face the world and I have to admit my skin is very thick. I always think back to Johnny Cash's song called " A boy named Sue".
Have a blessed day.

Ellie said...

A lovely tribute to your mum, Gail. She would be be very proud x

Far Side of Fifty said...

I am sorry..some people are not real forthright with their feelings..and it is difficult for them to show their emotions..perhaps she was one of those women.
I am sure she loved you..how could she not love your sweet spirit:)

Pat said...

How could she NOT be proud of you? But she was of the generation to not speak of such. You'd have to know by her actions.

Sarah said...

How very poignant.How important it is to tell our children how much we love them, how proud we are. It doesn't matter how many people tell you that she was proud of you - you need her to tell you.Reading this short, sweet post has brought a tear to my eye.I am sure that your own children know exactly how proud you are of them and that is something good.My dad never told me he loved me and I make sure my children know how much I love them every day.You are certainly a woman well worth being proud of. xx
