GIRL TO GRANNY
This is my mother as a young college girl.
Little did she know that her life would change dramatically when she married my dad.
Three children to raise and multiple congregations to please. She was the preacher's wife. Her children, her husband, her home had to be spotless or it would reflect poorly on my father's ministry. My mother worked from sun up to sun down. At least things got easier as their life added some modem conveniences after starting out with an outhouse for a bathroom.
No matter what life challenged her with she was always beautiful.
And always busy. Even in her retirement she spent hours at the weaving loom creating beautiful keepsakes for our family.
I miss her every day. I could not miss her more. She was my rock.
