Me n Mom

Happy Mother’s Day to our moms!
Whether they are alive or dead,
They live daily in our thoughts –
Either lovingly or with dread.

Some folks weren’t as lucky
As I feel I was born to be.
I had a strong-willed mother
Who passed her strength on down to me.

Mom & Dad

Mom moved from her home in Washington
To marry my handsome Italian dad.
She spent her life in central California.
Musta made her mother rather sad.

Mom raised me and my sis, Sally,
To learn to stand on our own two feet.
From day one we were taught to know
School wasn’t done ’til college was complete.

She was born fifth of six children –
And her dad died when she was a teen.
College wasn’t an option for her, but for sure
Her girls would experience that scene!

Sally, Dad, Mom & me

    • I don’t know why it did not reblog the entire original post.And when you click on the place that says, “view original post … 228 more words” … it doesn’t take you there. Click on May 2021 in the right margin and see if that gives you a place to click on the original “Embrace Mothers.”

  7. Jan, thank you sharing this post again. I think of my own mother, who raised a team of five basketball players plus one cheerleader.
