I have probably had this photo for years but didn't notice it until just the other day. I wish I'd found it before Mothers Day so I could have posted it then. But very soon it will be the anniversary of my mother's birthday so this is a good time to share. (I think that's me in the photo and, yes, our house number really was #13!)
My mom was a stay-at-home mom for us six children for many years but later in life she found great pleasure in becoming a presiding officer in some of the women's groups she joined. In church, she became our choir director. As a lovely soloist, she was often asked to sing for community and church events. Many people from my hometown in Upper Michigan remember hearing her voice in church on Sundays, weddings, and funerals. Her Ave Maria was enough to make the strongest person weep for joy!
Thinking of you Mom on this beautiful Sunday morning! Miss you...love you.
