i remember as a little girl
KNOWING
my
* mom was so beautiful *
her hair naturally curled perfectly
* she never had a bad hair day *

i loved her
... jewelry...
&
...her clothes...

...she had perfect eyebrows...
never wore more than mascara..blush & lipstick
&
was
ALWAYS
...noticed when she walked in a room...

she
.. smelled good...
all the time!
is it silly i remember that?
* i think it was it was guerlain or chloe *

...she was always remembered ..
couple weeks ago a boy i know from elementary school
said he remember her tieing his shoe
for him...
i love that he remembers she took time to do that
&
...it left a sweet impression on him...

she could
make
ANYTHING!!

...she had an amazing garden full of tulips...
* this is probably pre-spring bloom

US!!

* all 4 of her babies *

*i think i may like this best*
nothing like a beautiful woman
not afraid to have
fun
&
get dirty
!!

she has outlived both her parents ..
&
...her own daughter..
... a mothers greatest fear...
she is a
cancer survivor

&
she knows she has many angels

* she can swim like a fish*
* walk faster than anybody i know without breaking into a sweat*
*her toes are always pointed*
*her hands always lotioned*
* fingernails always filed *
&
*she can laugh so hard she cries*

Maggie this is the sweetest tribute to your mom! You look exactly and I mean EXACTLY like her! I can see she did alot of things to make your childhood special and memorable! My mom was like that too and I love her even more now that I'm a mom and I try to do the same but I'll never live up to her example! Especially in the housecleaning and sewing department! :)
Happy Holidays my Friend!
