THROW BACK THURSDAY


This picture of my brother and mother was taken in the 80's.  I miss them both so much.  This is my tribute to my Mom for Mother's Day.  She was an angel wrapped in human skin.  Everyone loved her and she was a wonderful mother to my sister Donna, Hal and me.  My mom lost her battle to cancer in  1991, and my little brother February of last year.

Funny I had forgotten that set of dishes and those drapes and sheer curtains sure tell the date don't they.  Looks like I had baked a cake, so it must have been someones birthday.  Wish I could remember.  That was the parsonage in Hughson.

These Throw Back Thursday's sure bring back memories, don't they?

  1. Memories are so precious, aren't they? Lovely to see a throwback of your Mom and brother. I know when I look at older photos it often brings a flash of intense memory - a mood, or smell, or song. Thank goodness for photography!

    1. There is an old hymn ~~ "Precious memories, how they linger....." Love that old song. It's so true the flashbacks we get when seeing something from the past. Amen to having cameras...can't imagine our life without them.

    1. So true...and these old photo's. I guess in the future..old pictures won't be in albums, but on disks.

  6. It's hard to imagine a time not so long ago when there were no photographs to look back on, no tape recordings of familiar voices... We are blessed.

    1. You could not have found a better mom if you searched the world. She was so loving and gracious and I learned so much about life from her.

  9. I do much prefer holding a real photo in my hand. Something's missing when we are just looking at them on digital devices all the time. Going through old photo albums is so much more palpable than flipping through a touch screen. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

    1. I have a friend who has cataloged her photos in 3 ring binders for every year. She has book cases of them, and it's easy to find them because of the dates.

    1. Oh my, I do look so much like her. I look in the mirror the older I get, and see my mom looking back at me. It's kinda sweet.

  12. Sorry they are gone from your midst but so glad you had close relationships with each. I am quite sure your mother was indeed an angel of God's with human skin on. :)
