My mother was born April 17, 1910, one hundred four years ago today.
In honor of her birthday, I thought I’d share a few photos of her life.
I have very few pictures of my mom and dad together. (He died when I was just an infant, and I have no memory of him at all.) There’s no date on this picture, so I don’t know if it was before they were married, before they had children?
My mom with my sisters, June and Rose.
With me, as a baby. Many nights, my mom and my sisters would swing me to sleep in that porch swing.
Fast forward to the early 1980′s, with Marshall and me.
At a family reunion, (far left) with her five sisters, early 1990′s.
And one of our very favorite pictures of her, taken on a trip with my sister, June, in Myrtle Beach, also early 1990′s.
“You count the hours you could have spent with your mother.
It’s a lifetime in itself.”
