Friends, Romans, Ladies…behold, my mother!

~~~*~~~

When around others, she usually prefered to listen instead of talking, but when she talked,  you really listened.

She liked playing with her boy cousins, hated dolls, always wore her hair short and loved to drink Coke (to the very end, even if she was diabetic most of her life.)

So that explains why I don’t like frilly dresses, pink and most of the usual “girl” things.

Could also explain why I like the not-so-usual tv shows, like Buffy, House, Cold Case and Pushing Daisies and other detective and/or non-mainstream shows. (I also like Cagney & Lacey, which she loved before I was born.)

  1. Nice remembrance of your mom. Don’t you sometimes wish you could have been friends with her when she was that little girl?

  3. She sounds like a good mother, a woman not only of her time but the ages to come. I like your scrapbook pages, they are effectively artistic.

  7. I read this on the eve of Mother’s day…how fitting. We get so much from our mothers. I really miss mine. Some days I won’t be thinking about her for a minute, then I will do something and it will remind me of her as it is the way she always did it…and so the cycle continues.
