What a lovely post of your daughter's and what a lovely mother you were/are.FlowerLady
This made me smile and brought tears to my eyes. What a wonderful legacy you have given your children, Ernestine.
OH MY WORD that picture of my with the chicken. That's Henrietta, by the way. ;) Those white knee socks...oh my. I am glad I have better fashion sense now.Love you!
flowerlady and sharon, thank you for visiting.My Jamie, I think you look beautiful. Yes, styles have changed - bet you would not dress the little girls like this :)
Warmed a mama's heart...I know it did...it did mine.
Oh E,I just read her post...beautiful! Not surprising, considering her Momma's ability to express her heart with honesty, compassion and grace.
Beverly and LauraX, thank you so much for your kind comments....
beautiful, grand, southern home where you and your youngest lived. reminds me a bit of the historical home my parents renovated in the 60s. it, too, sits on a large acreage estate, and i understand the draw the land has, the privacy and solitude it offers. we still love swinging in the front porch swing and rocking in those big porch rockers. i miss the southern architecture so much here in the PNW where most homes lack that kind of charm and beauty. looks like you, a born city girl, took quite well to the country! your daughter is so very talented, and i always enjoy reading her blog. you must be quite proud of her (and she of you!). the pic of her with her chicken is adorable!
Dear Sky, thank you. Yes I am so proud of her. She is my baby!!I miss your writing :)
What a lovely post she wrote. We sometimes wonder what our kids remember and so glad she remembers the really good times.
Such wonderful ways of sharing. You are both very blessed.
Judy, yes she has fond memories.so sorry my older daughter's remember a mom and home in turmoil....
