Mom's Birthday Contest

This is my favorite picture of Mom.


 Reading was one of Mom's favorite past times.
 She gave all of her children the love of literature. We all enjoy escaping into the pages of a good novel.

 Mom's Birthday is coming up January,9th.
Although she passed away over ten years ago my sister Paula and I still celebrate her Birthday.
 Every year at this time we post a contest on our blogs and give away something that reminds us of our Mom.

 
This year I am giving away a "Mom" book.

 In "The Healing Quilt" by Lauraine Snelling When her Aunt Teza faces a second bout with breast cancer, Kit Cooper resolves to raise money for a new mammogram unit by creating a magnificent king-size quilt to be sewn and auctioned by the women of Jefferson City.

 With hearts rent by loss they mend their lives one stitch at a time.

 Just leave a comment on my blog and you will be entered in Mom's Birthday Contest.

 Check out my sister Paula's blog and see what she is giving away this year.

I don't remember seeing this picture, but love it! So hard to beleive someone can be gone for such a long time, yet still be such a huge part of so many lives. We are so blessed to have the memories of such a great Mom. I miss her every day.
