Mom's & Roses...

Mother's Day is really right around the corner !  I seem to forget it some that my Mom isn't here to celebrate.  I think of all the things I would love to do for her now, that I seemed to be too busy for then.  

I want a Mom do-over !  

I want to take her every phone call, run over and have coffee with her in the morning, go to dinner every Sunday...or better yet...every time she called and invited me, I want to go shopping with her, and finish painting the mural in her bathroom, and look through the endless catalogues she got in the mail with her showing me the things she loved in them.  I miss her cooking, telling me a new recipe or what she had for dinner,  her humor, her matter of fact way in the world.  Mostly I miss her blue sparkling eyes looking at me, through me...and I remember so vividly, the last wink she gave me before she was gone.

On an equally happy note I want to share some of the pillows I've done to honor Mom' Mom and all Mom's.  And oh yea...I'm a Mom too!  My little one is 30 now...a wonderful young man who is bright and creative and picked the perfect daughter in law for me...I'm crazy about these (my) two kids !

  1. Beautiful thoughts and pillows!

  2. I miss my Mama, too! Lovely tribute to your mom Denise and I love your pillows.

  3. What a great tribute to your mom, Denise! I know how you feel. My mom passed away in October 2001, and so often I'll think of something I want to make and give her, but she's not there to receive it. I have most of the hankies for which she crocheted an edging...I taught her how to crochet, and she did one hanky edging after another. Speaking of hankies, I like your set of two best.
