My mom.Simple. She's taken good care of me. She's passed on her love of reading, gardening, and cooking. I'm happy when we get to cook together. She helps me put in my garden every year. We share books back and forth although she is way more into the classics than I am but I'll forgive her that. I enjoy her company, a blessing, because in my 20's I did not. We were at that time on opposite ends of ideas but as I became a mother and a wife things evened out and I could see things more clearly. This is one of my favorite photos of my mom and I; we are in the kitchen getting ready to freeze tomato sauce. It was August and my hair was unusually short for me. The apron I am wearing was my Grandma B's, very special. She knows just how to squeeze my hand when I need it.
Happy February, Mom-I'm happy you like getting my blog posts in your in-box.
