What do you remember about your mom on Mother’s Day.
Thirty years since I celebrated Mother’s Day with my MOM, but still I think of her often.
Some things I remember about her:
- she made all my dresses, coats, etc.
- she made curtains and drapes for our home
- cooked healthy food (to care for my father who was diabetic)
- our family ate all the things she made for my father because she thought it was GOOD and HEALTHY for us
- she watched every penny that was spent in the Wood Household (and we thought she was a “tight wad”)
- our home was always spic & span
- she would drive extra miles to buy fresh brown eggs
- she worked at sewing for us and the women in our community
- our clothes were always clean and ironed
- she taught me to knit
- she taught many women how to drive a car
- she altered clothes for women
- she was always willing to help those having problems
- her wisdom was always expressed in loving ways
- she supported our family when my father died at a young age
- she worked hard in everything she did
- she only had an eight grade education
- she took me to church services every Sunday
- you could find her in the same pew each Sunday with a blind lady at her side
- she made sure I took piano lessons from Miss Hilda every week
- she provided the opportunity to learn how to play the organ
The Bible tells about a Noble Woman in Proverbs 31:10-31. Every time I read these passages I think of my mother.
Thank you for being such a mother & wife, mom. And Thank you for teaching me about the love of Christ.
