mothers

While driving to work this week, I chatted with my
grandmother & it reminded me of conversations
I used to have with my mom.
She was encouraging, speaking life-giving words to me.
I am so thankful I can still pick up the phone to call 
either of my grandmothers, though they live hundreds of miles away.

Even though my mom is no longer with us, 
I am reminded of so many things I learned from her:
cooking
memorizing Scripture
housekeeping
writing notes
crafting
giving thoughtful gifts
singing
keeping in touch with friends
baking
Christmas 1980
...and the things I would ask her more about
so I could actually learn them from her:
being a wife
making gravy
gardening
balancing multiple obligations
gift wrapping
being a mother

Happy Mother's Day!
