More to remember



Occasionally, my dad's birthday would land on Mother's Day...


Which makes this Mother's Day even more special...


I miss him so...

but he and my mom both live on in the little things I do and say...
their mannerisms, voices, features...

his strength and determination, his love of nature & creativity,
and some say...

his eyes ~
Daddy's little girl


Although my mother is no longer on this earth,
I feel her love imprinted on my heart,

Dad and Mom ~ young love
her words still speak softly
to my soul,  
her grace and unconditional love,
forgiveness and friendship endure;                    
her humor lives on;
I can almost hear her laughter
and many times
I think I hear her voice...
She still holds my heart...

In...

 HER HANDS   
(I wanted to re-post this tribute to mom,
but thought I'd just link it up here)





All the more special this Mother's Day is.
All the more reason to celebrate
  two loving parents...both gifts from God.

I love the tribute to your dad on Mother's Day. My birthday often falls on Mother's Day, so it makes me smile. Mothers and fathers serve different yet such significant roles. I appreciated reading about your dad!

Your parents are Hollywood gorgeous! I'm guessing they were gorgeous on the inside too, judging by the way you turned out. It looks like they passed it all on to you!

My mom died on Mother's Day a few years back, so yeah. I'm missing her. I can't wait for that big old reunion in the sky!

loved looking at your photos.

I'm sorry neither of your parents are with you now, but hope the memories are wonderful.

Sending thoughts and love x
