Mom would have been 70 Today


I think she would have been bothered by this number. I am trying not to be bothered by numbers like this, rather focus on quality of life at any age! She was about 7 years younger than I am now in this photo and already had three children (ok four if you include her first one here....Thai) If we could spend her birthday together today no doubt it would have included a Starbucks Latte and some Quilt Shops! Instead I will take comfort in my cup of coffee at home and continue to work on Christmas Stockings using some of the fabric from her stash.

You do look a lot like your mother, what a wonderful photo; love the patchwork rug. Don't you know how proud your mother is of you and all your varied interests... she's smiling down on you! This is such a sweet and loving tribute.
