Happy Mother's day!

One of the earliest memories I have of my Mother, is of her rocking me in the rocking chair in our living room one night when I couldn't sleep.( When she passed away, she had enough rocking chairs that we each got one.... except Bart. No one knows what happened to Bart's chair. All I have to say to Bart is "neaner neaner!" Bart got my great grandmother's brass bed and feather tick. He also only had 2 wisdom teeth, when the rest of us suffered with 4. I think this is a fair trade :) ) The chair was really creaky, and she said it was talking to us...lol. All of the grandchildren were also rocked in it at one time or another.



Happy Mother's Day my friends! I hope you have a fabulous day:)I'd love to hear your Mommy memories... xox

What a sweet story. I remember my mom taking us to the local gas station on Mother's Day morning after working a graveyard shift and giving us her tips to run in and get her something for Mother's Day. (usually something we liked so she would share. Lol.)
