#ThrowbackThursday My Mom

It’s hard to believe sometimes that my mom has been gone from my life more than she was in it. Weird, because she made such a lasting impression on my character. She was my best friend and my mentor besides being my mom. She was also someone who always pushed me to do more, which isn’t necessarily a good thing because sometimes she pushed too much. I see myself pushing too much sometimes and have to really pull back from that because it can be damaging as well.

But anyway, here’s my mom when she was maybe in her twenties. A beautiful woman as well as smart and determined.

#ThrowbackThursday Do You Remember?

This is a picture I took at a library exhibition a couple of years ago. I had to take it because it reminded me of my mom. Why? Many many years earlier I had the opportunity to work with my mom before she passed. It was a wonderful year and one of the things she loved was to go across the street from our office to the last place that had what you see below and get their vegetable plate. So we trudged over there, loaded with change and it was an experience.

So post in the comments if you remember what these are and if you ever used one!
