Mother’s Day has come and gone. We are still packing for the move and not getting much of anything else done. But this time of year I tend to think of my mom, Patsy. Between Mother’s Day and May 18th, her birthday, my thoughts simply turn in this direction. You will recognize this picture as Mabel & Jean, but in reality, it is my mom, on the left, and my aunt! My mom died 27 years ago at the young age of 60. When I think of her, it is with very fond, yet distant memories. My mom could be a force to be reckoned with! She was a tiny, tenacious Texas woman. She always found the best in people and they gravitated towards her. I miss her. Here are some pictures for you to peruse.
My mom raised 6 children and I have to say we turned out pretty well! That is not to say there weren’t times when “hell” seemed to break loose. When you go see the movie AUGUST, OSAGE COUNTY, you might just see shades of our life in there. I have only seen the play, which was written by Tracy Letts of Tulsa and was filmed in my hometown of Pawhuska and the surrounding area. It is definitely not a “feel good” movie. You can check out the trailer here.
Mom, just thinking about you on Mother’s day.
All in all though, life is good, things are getting packed and the blog is getting written! If I am absent next week, you will know the move didn’t go well!
Thanks for being here and as always, leave comments!10 Comments
