Mom and Me

I just got back from a visit to my mom in Arkansas.  She is 93 and is in a nursing home now.   My son took this picture of us on my birthday.  When I told her I have loved her for 74 years, she replied "I have loved you for 74 years and 9 months!"   The competition never ends...

(Click on the arrow to see the photo.   Andy didn't know he had the camera on video)

And do take notice of the quilt.  I made this tesselated leaf quilt for her years ago, and she won't go anywhere without it.


  1. What a lovely picture of you both Helen, hope you enjoyed your visit to Arkansas

  2. Ohh, the two of you look so lovely in that sweet quilt!

  3. Wonderful picture by your son. Love the quilt.

  4. What a wonderful story. You are so lucky to still have your mom...and she to have the quilt! Happy Mother's Day!

  5. Brought me to tears Helen, what a wonderful mistake that the camera was set to video and you have such a beautiful snippet of the two of you to keep forever :)
