TBT and Mother's Day

I've never done a Throwback Thursday post, but decided the timing was right with Mother's Day coming up this weekend.  My mother has been gone almost 25 years already. She would have been so proud of her granddaughters and thrilled with the great-grandchildren. And she is the person who really gave me a love of sewing and reading. Thanks Mom!!

This was my baptism photo taken in 1954 in Renville, Minnesota. Guess I wasn't too happy with the occasion, but my mother looks delighted.  Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms I know!


  1. What a precious photo that tells a great story!

  2. Happy Mother's Day! I think of all the times my mom would enjoy seeing her grandkids and doing things with them. Twenty six years ago today would have been my first communion. Not sure I could find a picture right away, but it's fun to remember special dates.
