Today is my beautiful Mama's birthday. She would have been 76 years old today. God took her home to be with him and my two brothers three and a half years ago and I still miss her so very much.
This is a picture of her when she was young holding a young cousin of hers.
This is my Mama and me in about 1967 with a new puppy I had gotten.
Here is my beautiful Mama in 1983. I just love this picture.
This is my children's favorite picture. My mama with a BB gun and her hair in rollers! She had came over to my house for me to roll her hair for her. I always rolled her hair for her. Once she actually let me cut her hair! Boy was she brave! When I got through her hair was only about 2 inches long all over her head! I laugh every time I think about it! I was probably 23 or so at the time. There is no way I would let one of my kids cut my hair. My Mama was something else!
Here she is on her birthday, with my kids, a year before she died. I wanted to post the birthday pictures taken the year she died but they weren't on my computer and I did not have time to find them and scan them in this morning.
My Mama was a wonderful person. She had problems over the years with prescription drug abuse, but then I can understand that in a way. She had lost two sons and that took it's toll on her. But no one ever has or ever will love me the way my Mama loved me. She was a very kind and sweet person and people still tell me this today and how much they miss her. Even though I miss her terribly I am glad she is at home with God and her sons that she grieved for for so many years. I love you Mama!
