I picked Gratitude to write about for the month on November. I missed a few days but life goes on…


On this day, 11/05/2020, I am thankful that I had such a good, caring, loving mother and that I can remember her and see some of the pictures from her life. She passed away in December of 1994 so it has been quite a long time. I don’t remember everything but I can pick out moments and remember her, what she said, etc. I can’t really remember her voice. Everyone loved my mom. She did so many things (must be where I get it from!). She reupholstered furniture, sewed everything from Halloween costumes to prom dresses to stuffed Christmas trees for the holidays. She used to make these really neat ornaments out of egg shells. My cousin still has a few. She would somehow take just a little oval of the shell off and clean out the shell. Then she would put a little scene inside the shell (guess maybe that is where I get my mini-stuff fascination). Next she would dip the outer side of the entire shell in glitter. Finally she would put a little piece of decorative ribbon around the hole in the shell so it was almost like a little picture window.

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a wonderful, talented, loving mother like I did. I wish everyone did! I was very fortunate, and for that I am very grateful!

  1. I’m lucky that my mother is still with me. I wonder about the loss of the memory of voice. My father died in 2007 and I can’t remember his voice but if he were to call out to me I’d recognize it in an instant… Your mother surely passed on to you her talent for crafts and her creativity!

  2. I love this. My Mom died in 1986, so it’s been a long time for me as well. Our mothers had much in common. My mother was also one who did a lot of sewing and crafting of all kinds. If we are fortunate to have a good mother (some are not so blessed) it gives much to be thankful for. It sounds like your Mom lives on in you and that is something we can all be grateful for.
