All About Mothers
3. Share one of the earliest memories you have from childhood.
One of my earliest memories was maybe when I was 2 or 3. I was a very timid little girl. I hid underneath my mother’s skirt. Literally! I can still remember feeling so safe there…of seeing the soft filtered sunlight through her skirt material. Sitting on her shoes, while she talked with a friend or family member. Funny memory I know. But one I hold close to my heart. The special thing is, that she didn’t mind me sitting under her long skirt. That’s what mothers are for right? They know what you need, when you need it the most. Security.
4. When did you last ‘hit the mother lode’? What was it?
I have been very blessed in many, many ways. The most recent memory that comes to mind, that this applies to, would be when my husband was able to have Proton Therapy for his prostate cancer treatments. These are extremely expensive treatments, and they were approved by our insurance, which is rare! So they definitely fall under the ‘mother lode.’ By God’s grace we hope he
5. What is your favorite dish your mom made? Do you make that dish for your family/friends now that you are grown up?
6. Mother May I? was at one time a popular children’s game. It required no equipment or parts to play. What was your favorite childhood game to play where you could just turn up and play no gear needed?
My mother loved to play “Ain’t No Bears Out Tonight” with my sister and I. We would wait until it was extra dark outside and then Momma would go and hide somewhere in the yard. Meanwhile Amy and I would creep around singing…”Ain’t no bears out tonight…grandpa killed them all last night…” until suddenly my little Momma would jump growling from the bushes and scare us half to death. We would run away screaming and then have a fit of giggles and beg her to play “Just one more time.” Those were some fairly fabulous summer nights. =)
