Happy Mom's Day....
She ruled with a stern hand. We all got our share of spankings, some so well deserved. Well maybe my baby brother needs just one more. LOL.
Mommy worked over 25 years for K-Mart. When we were little, she worked some canning factories. We have all worked, all but three of us had families. We all miss our mother.
You know as you age you learn to appreciate some of the things it took your parents to raise you. Even if at times you felt things were never fair...it all worked out. I would like to write some thing I read on Linda's blog, That's Linda of Linda's Life Journal. Love that lady. It was something along these lines. May we know great women, May we be great women , and May we raise great women.
Happy Mother's Day XO

Wonderful sentiment. Our families are everything!ReplyDelete
Janet, I wonder what my two sisters and baby brother feel without children. One sister had a miscarriage and then a hysterectomy...I think she wanted children. I would be lost without my daughters. Blessings, hope your day was happy. xoxo, SusieDelete
Great photo ...ReplyDelete
Families are just so good!
All the best Jan
Hi Jan, I love my girls so much. I enjoy all my family time. It's precious. Time can get away too quickly, we must make the most of it. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
You have a beautiful family. You sound like me when it came to growing up. We had what we needed and then some even though daddy and mama worked their hands to the bone to give it to us. Happy Mom's Day to you dear friend. xoReplyDelete
Susie, I have always felt connected with you. It's the hard lives that have made us tough. Thank you for the good wishes...I certainly wish you the same. Blessings, xoxo, love, SusieDelete
Happy Mother's Day Susie. I have enjoyed catching up with you this morning before I go to the nursing home. I was one of 10 so I know what you are talking about. I did grow up on the farm. My mom and dad said there was two things to remember you treated people with respect and how you wanted to be treated. You did the best that you could in whatever you did in life. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend ShirleyReplyDelete
Shirley, Mom did make us treat people with respect. We would have gotten a beating if we messed up. But I think with so many children, mommy had to be a tough cookie. LOL. Blessings to you my sweet friend. Wishing you a great new eek. xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh Susie, I have a plaque at home with that saying on it, and I love it as well. Wow, 11 kids....it reminds me of my mother-in-law who had 10! This picture of all of you is surely special, and I love the picture of you and your daughters. You know, I've never tasted rabbit before.ReplyDelete
Happy Mother's Day to a grand lady!
Sheri, I never want to eat wild game again. I am not fond of beans and cornbread either. I used to always tease that my real parent would come get me one day...well that never happened. LOL..so I had to grow where I was planted. LOL. Blessing for a wonderful day of love from your children. I have truly enjoyed my mother's day weekend. Love, xoxo, SusieDelete
Warm cornbread and butter is a favorite of mine, especially with chili. There is a place here called Mel's Diner that serves the best corn bread and butter. :)Delete
What a great looking bunch of ladies...happiest Mother's Day...ReplyDelete
Thank you BJ. Just like you, I love my children so much. I have truly enjoyed my whole weekend. I hope you had loving family time, on your Mother's Day too. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Just found your blog and I love your paraphrased quote. What lovely sentiment! Happy Mother's Day. :)ReplyDelete
Hi Michelle, Glad you came by. Thank you for the wishes. I loved my entire weekend. Got to have time with my daughters. Hope your Mother's Day was wonderful too. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Beautiful family! Hope your Mother's Day and weekend was beautiful, too.ReplyDelete
Cheryl, I did have a beautiful weekend ...got to be with my daughters and enjoy fun laughs, good food and conversations. Hope you had the same. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Pictures are wonderful. As I get older I value more and more all the wonderful things my mother did for me and for all the family.ReplyDelete
Carol, I think as we age we do learn things about what all our parents did while we were growing...these things start to make more sense. Like Mom making beans all the time...it was all she could afford, but she fed us, not the government . Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Lovely, sweet Susie!! Wow, you had a big family - how lucky for you!! I hope you had the most wonderful Mother's Day - your daughters are just beautiful!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the sweet comment. I do love my family. I am lucky that my sisters all live here in town. My brothers have their golf outings. Blessings, hope your mother's day was wonderful. xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie what a beautiful family you have!! Bless your sweet mother for working so hard to raise you all. If you're any sign of how she raised her children then she did an amazing job!!!ReplyDelete
Hope your day was nlessrd.
Gert, My mother told me once that she truly admired me...for raising good daughters, getting an education(this after dropping out of school) and getting a skilled job. Those words from my mother meant the world to me. I did have a great mother's day, hope your was also. Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I can't even imagine eleven children in a family. Do you still manage to get together from time to time? -JennReplyDelete
Jenn, My oldest daughter has 4th of July family reunion at her house. Almost everyone comes...each year is a bit different. You know when your parents, who are the hub of the family circle , are gone things tend to change. We all become our hubs and then our children are our circles. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
