Happy Mother's Day Mom

My Mom - Doris

Mom as a little girl

Mom as a baby with her baby bonnet

My mom is such a blessing to our family. My husband and I are fortunate in the fact that she lives only about a mile from our house. She'll be 85 the end of May (sorry Mom!) and does not look like it or act like it. She has more energy than I have! Her name is Doris and we named our daughter after her. She's caring and giving, a friend to all. Every one that meets her thinks the world of her right away.

Mom as a teenager (isn't she pretty?)

Now you may be wondering about the song selection that I chose. As indicated in my previous post, I come from a country music background. Mom's favorite is Conway Twitty! To say he is her favorite is an understatement . I think she has every record he ever made and Hello Darlin' is her favorite.

Mom, I love you more than I can ever express. I am so proud to be your daughter. This song is for you! And for all of you out there in blog land that have children I hope you have a blessed Mother's Day!

Hi Jean, it was great meeting you yesterday! I'm glad you found some treasures, I did too. The WX Faire is one of my favorites...I hope you come up again.

What a lovely tribute to your mom,and what sweet treasues you have from her childhood. It's neat that she lives near by.

I have to agree Trae Adkin's is a cutie and can sing too.
