She was a wonderful mother and I always told her that when I had children of my own I would hope to be as great a mother as she was. Though I do not have any kids I still strive to be as great a lady as she was.
When friends came to her house there was always a pot of coffee brewing and something to eat. Our kitchen, small and humble was the gathering post for all the neighborhood woman. I saw alot of rummy card games go bad LOL I saw my brother break up with his girlfriend, and that is where I found out my grandfather passed away. That kitchen is also where I knew I would marry my then boyfriend.That same kitchen is also the place I sat after her death, sitting in her same chair, drinking a pot of coffee and crying because that awesome LADY was gone.
So Mom, know that I think of you everyday, miss you like crazy and know that I am so thankful you instilled great values and a good sense of humor in your baby girl.
