Happy Mother's Day

On this special day,I want to give honour to the woman who helped to make me who I am today — My Mother.
My mother was not perfect,but she taught me so much.She was a hard working woman and made sure that my sister and I learned how to work.
She was a kind person,who always had extra food ready to serve to unexpected guests.
Our home was simple,yet the doors were open wide for family and friends alike.
Many a Christmas and other special day we had extra people at the table and always Mom had small gifts for each one.

Here is a picture of my Mom sitting on the right and my Mother-in-law on the left.
The occasion for this picture was a bridal shower for me,hosted by an Auntie.I could write a story about this Auntie as well,but for today the focus is on Mothers
I still miss my Mom,even after all the years since she has over to Heaven.
Both of these ladies have gone on to their heavenly home and both are in my heart forever.


Now on to the man who made me a Mother and the young lady who gave me the title of Grandma.
Steve and Kai are very special people in my my life.I trust that I can show them my love in little ways every day.I am truly blessed to have them in my life and to experience the joy they bring.


I just realized that these pictures prove that I once had darker hair and more hair as well.
These pictures also show a family that has a lot of love in their hearts.
God has blessed me beyond measure and for that I give Him praise.

  22. Lovely photos and memories, Ruth! Ah, how the styles have changed over the years, and funny that what we wore back then actually looks almost as strange as what the kids are wearing today. Okay, maybe not! I feel very blessed today too. Happy Mother's Day, Ruth!
