2012 started out like it always does for me just another day on the calendar just a new year with new beginnings and changes. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that this would be the year my mom would cross that rainbow bridge. Mom passed in Jan....2 wks after her 85th birthday.
Since that time I have been back to my old childhood home to clean out my parents place. (Daddy wants to sell the house so he can close this chapter of his life and start a new one.) Mom was big into crafting mostly crocheting and knitting. I learned from her when I was young how to crochet but never to knit. She even turned one of our old bedrooms into a computer/craft room where she kept all her supplies.
In packing up the supplies there were 3 - 3ft tall packing boxes full of goodies. 2 - blanket bags full of more goodies and countless tins and smaller boxes of supplies as well. As I go through all of these boxes to reorganize, see what is what and all I also find myself going through lots of memories. Memories that make me miss my mom....wishing she was still here.
In order to keep her memories alive I will finish up her unfinished projects and start new ones with the supplies that she left behind.
I love you mom.....I miss you terribly.....You will never be forgotten.
