My Mom has been on my heart a lot lately. In 2004 her time on earth lapsed. Her journey here ended and she passed with unspeakable joy into the presence of the Glory of the Most High God, joining the multitude before Him singing praises to His name. Oh how I miss her. She was my close confidant, constant cheerleader, and the Mom of all Moms. In the photo is a picture of her in her youth; beautiful, vibrant, full of life. She lived a full life and loved well. Oh the joy when we meet again! The other photo is of my great grandmother...Mother Fannie. My mother gave me Mother Fannie's engagement ring when she (my Mom) was in the early stages of Alzheimers; a gift I treasure deeply and wear constantly. I tried to take a pic of the ring, but the nearly flawless diamond always caught the light of the flash. Mother Fannie is in her wedding dress (the year is 1907) which won a special award at the World's Fair. The photo is trimmed on the corners with lace from her dress.
The little box is from my hubby's grandma and is quite old. I keep the figurines my Mom gave me when each one of my daughters was born in it. Ladies, if your Mom is still here with you, call her, write her or give her a hug and let her know how much you love her. You'll be glad you did!!
Here is a bigger shot of Mother Fannie in her wedding dress. Her engagement ring is in the forefront, though not very clearly pictured.
This is a vintage look card I made last night. I have to say it is my favorite card to date. It just went with the other things in the picture. Making cards is a current favorite pastime.
