Wednesdays With My Mom (and giveaway reminder)

Well, last week was one of the wackiest I've had in a long time. So I ended up making my usual Wednesday all-day visit on Thursday.
This picture, above, is way out of order. This is actually a photo of my mom holding child #3, my sister, June. I'll get back on track (chronologically speaking) next week.
Okay, a precious story:
The cutest thing happened this night, last week. We were watching 'The Rookie', with Dennis Quade, and during the scene of the High School baseball game they sang the National Anthem as usual. Well, I was over at the ironing board and I JUST KNEW she would sing along. So I stopped everything I was doing just to watch her. She had a smile on her face and was singing along ever so softly. I snapped this pic later. : )

Just a reminder to sign up for the Giveaway before Friday at noon by clicking here. Thank you so much for all the sweet comments and participation!!!

Now girl you need to quit advertising your already have 85 which is cutting into my chances to win!!!!

There is just something about the National Anthem that makes everyone want to sing along. I bet that was a special moment for you.

I love the special things you share about your mom! Aren't they precious? Mine still teaches me so much and I crave time with her. I just wish we lived closer.
Good luck with your new adventures!


I am with Darlene your giveaway is really being advertized and cutting down our chances! LOL
I saw it on Mimi Sue's blog last night. :-)

Mimi Sue said...

I love how you have reminders taped to the TV for your mom. I'm going to start doing that for myself. Great idea. My memory is not what it used to be. Love all your old pics. Give her a hug for me because today I'm really missing my mom. Mimi

You are so creative and I love reading your blog. I especially like the older pictures you post. And I wish I had a skirt like the one your Mom has on in this picture.

OH....your mom is just beautiful holding your sister.

I just love how you care for your mom. How sweet you knew that she would sing. And you stopped and took it all in. She's just a cute lady.

Have a great day!

I love it how you know your mom so well that you knew she would sing along.

The image of you ironing at your Mom's while she was watching The Rookie and singing along made me cry. What precious times you have with her. My purse and bottle came today...safely and totally intact! They are even more lovely in person than in a picture. The fabric handbag is beautiful and will be a gift for my big sister...maybe the bottle, too. I have to think hard about parting with that! Thanks Mary Lou! You're the best!

Yes, that's a picture of my Mom and me. I keep thinking about changing it, but just can't. I love your picture and story of your Mom. That's a precious memory. Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Hi there!

Yes...I do remember talking with you about the Santos doll. I love the way you have dressed yours up...can you imagine the fun we could get into if we all lived closer? Your blog is wonderful and God Bless your sweet Mom. What a wonderful gift you have been given to have this special time with her.

Smiles ~ Ramona

She sang along - how cute!

My grandmother loved Abbott and Costello so I liked to rent them if she was going to be over. It was hilarious to watch her just laugh and laugh (of course I was laughing too because they are hilarious)

These are the sweet memories that we hold dear...that had to be a special moment. Give your Mom a kiss from me 'kay?
