Happy Mother's Day Mom!

I really miss my mom, especially today. She went to Heaven on August 8, 2006 and I know she is with her Mom today. She looks so pretty in this picture because she is smiling. Mom never liked much to smile. I'm so happy I got this picture, taken only three months before cancer took her from us. We were all at my Aunt Vita's house in OK and we were having fun and laughing so hard. Mom was so sick and none of us knew it would be the last time we would be together like that.

Today, Son and I are going to go visit my Dad. Husband is sick and wants to stay in bed. It's my day and I want to spend it with my Dad. He is dong especially well having to live without Mom. He's lonely but keeps himself busy. I'm very proud of him.

I hope all you mother's have a great day today.


  1. What a touching tribute to you mom!

  2. Lovely picture of your mom, Sherril. You just never ever know how long we have with those we love, so enjoy every moment that you can. I am sure today was quite bittersweet for you!


  3. Your Mom is lovely. Thank you so much for sharing this special lady with us all.

  4. Finally, you started a blog! I just found it. I noticed your work on Pattern Review about four or five years ago. You're my favorite sewer!

    I can't wait to keep reading!

  5. Thank you for sharing your Mom, Sherril. My eyes are teary... Nothing to add to make things better. Enjoy your wonderful memories, eh.
