When I was little Mother's Day was a special day. I remember my Father going outside and cutting flowers from the bushes around the house. He liked the idea of using what we have and he always made them looked better than flowers from the florist. My Mom loved flowers. She loved whatever we gave her even if it was only card we wrote ourselves. My brother Michael would write missives on how much he loved her. He was a great one for leaving notes on pillows.....
I miss her everyday especially when I look at my bookshelves. Here are some books she picked out for me ---she was always giving me books.
A Garland for Girls by Louisa May Alcott
B is for Betsy by Caroline Haywood
Trina by Patricia Miles Martin
Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery (the whole series)
The Best Loved Doll by Rebecca Caudill
Thanks Mom....Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful Mother's in my life....
