I thought about you Mom and all the jam you used to make. Thank you for working so hard and making my childhood a fun and safe place to be. Most of that time you were very sick and could have died.
You ironed our collars and kept us so clean and combed. Sharon looks so cute in her littled pressed dressed for church.
Thank you for sewing pretty clothes for us and making sure we were startched and ready for school or church. You had a hemoglobin of only 6 when I was in grade school. Doctors thought you had lukemia. It took a long time for them to find out about your bleading ulcer. Thank you for loving us and working so hard even though you rarely felt good. Thank you for taking the time to read to us kids. You must have been very tired when this photo was taken. I love you Mom.
I thought of you Mom also, when I cleaned out my freezer the other day to make room for strawberry jam. You see it was a sinch for me. I just had to turn mine off and wipe it down.
You had to boil water and place the pan inside the frost covered shelves to speed the thawing process.
You didn't seem to mind. It took about three or four hours just to thaw that old style freezer. Thank you for inspiring me to be a good wife and mother and to take care of my home. I'm so thankful that God let you live to raise me and be my mother.
I always think of you Mom, when I make my own jam. Have a pleasant day. I'm glad I am your daughter. Love, Kathi
