Mom and Dad ~ Christmas at our house several years ago.
Mom loved the outdoors, especially woods and quiet natural areas. So do I. She enjoyed alone time, as I do. She loved old houses, their stories, and the sense of history they exude. Me, too. She was artistic and creative, loved crafting and making things with her hands. The longer she is gone, the more I realize we were alike in many ways.
I didn’t take time to find other pictures today. I’d have to dig through the scrapbook cupboards to find them, then scan them. Sounds like a good project for January/February. A good way to spend some of that alone time I enjoy so much. Just like Mom.
Happy birthday, Mom! Love, ~~Rhonda
