I wanted to honor my mom Charlotte Lee Edwards this mothers day. First with some pictures of her when she was young and younger and some thoughts on how she was a good mom to me. I remember always being able to talk to her. She was patient with me and long suffering. She always had wonderful food for us. I was lucky because she sometimes worked at the grammar schools I went to so I got to see her during the day. She was quite forgiving.
She loved her children, then her g-children and then her gg-children.
She loved the beach. She didn't like to swim but made sure we all learned. She was always up for an adventure. Ready to go where ever we wanted to. Sadly she didin't get to go everywhere she would have liked before she died. I want to put a shout out to all those who mothered me.
Look at me. How cute, who wouldn't have wanted to mother me.
To My sisters whom I love very much and have been able to see them take care and love their children. They have been examples to me.
To Lottie who was my second mom and pretty much my best friend for many years, she loved me and my children and I love her.
To Gwen who shared her amazing sewing skills with me she is quite clever and creative.
To Penny who has always been there to talk to and keep your confidence.
To Sandy who is an example of happiness and friendliness.
To Mel who has always been a second mom to my kids, she is just nice.
To my sister Candy who sadly has passed on. She was smart, witty and friendly. She had an awareness of Jesus Christ that we could talk about. She accepted my faults. I miss her.
To my Sister-in-law Rolaine her insight to things always amazed me. I can always count on good conversation with her. I appreciate that.
