In remembrance of my mother. It's been 5 years since her passing. She was a woman that I remember as a loving mother. She had her moments as we all do. She was a spit fire when she had to be. She taught me that harsh words are never really necessary. Some of the funny things I remember are we were in church years back and we were asking permission to go somewhere with a friend and for some reason she did not like what she was hearing from us and out loud she just said "Oh shit" for everyone to hear, and she said to us, now see what you made me say in church.

Or when we were in a store and she couldn't get out fast enough to go outside and she jumped the poles keeping the charts inside, it may not be funny to anyone else, but it was funny to us. Because sometimes it was a little out of character for her. But she was always softly firm in her actions and faithful to God. We miss her.This is an old picture of my mother and her mother. My Grandmother was a farm woman in Missouri and a mother of 8 children. My favorite thing I remember was when she wanted to swear. She didn't say damn it or shit. It was "Ah Swan". Maybe it was her way of saying I swear, but that was her curse word, I never heard her say anything else. She too was a woman that said little, but you knew she meant what she said. I wish I could have talked to her more.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL YOU WONDERFUL MOTHERS.
