Happy Mother's Day!

I want to wish all my blogging friends that are Mother's and Grandmothers a, "Happy Mother's Day"!

 As I get older I realize more and more the true unshelfish love that a mother has.

 My mother was only 23 when she had 4 children. She came from a family of 11 and my grandfather was an

alcoholic. My mother was determined that her children would have a better life than her.

  She worked so hard, my parents lived on a chicken farm, she had big gardens and would can everything

she could get her hands on so we would have wonderful food for the Winter.

 She taught me and my siblings about sharing, love and caring for other people. She made sure we went to

Sunday school and on Easter, had a new frilly dress and patent leather shoes. He He She would allow me to

have 3 of my school friend spend the night at one time. She was so proud of us when we graduated from highschool.

My mom always did without so that we could have, she is a very private woman. She is an inspriration to me. My mother's love and sacrifice is what helped mold me into the person that I am today!

I would be proud to be half the woman that she is. I love my mom very much and know as her and my dad

are getting older that I won't have them forever, so I cherish each day!

I love you mom and Happy Mother's Day!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
