Dad's Day


Thanks for the green eyes, attached ear lobes, and ability to sense that "something's burning!" 
You're the best you know!

Things That Remind me of Mom: A Belated Mother's Day Post

When I think of mom....

I think of rubies, and the scripture in Proverbs, "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies."


The color white.


Oregon and trees!  Especially Douglas Firs.



Real things, like real glasses instead of plastic...

real wood.



Good chocolate


Good food!  (ignoring the infamous eggy-apple-oatmeal for a moment here.)



The word GORGEOUS.  The first time I ever heard it as a little girl it was in reference to my beautiful mother, and every time I hear it now I think of her.


Music, she used to sing softly into the window of the car, now she performs in choirs and can hold her own on the alto part, not to mention violin and cello.  Music reminds me of mom.


Love that knows pain, sacrifice, gentleness, and peace.


"Do what you say, you are going to do."

Eternity.



I love you mom, and knowing how forgiving you are, you won't mind that this is 30 days late. :)
