I am visiting my mom who still lives in the house where we lived from when I was 5 years old. It is sad to see how old she is and how small and dated the house is. But she won’t leave it. She is 85 and still drives and works 4 mornings a week. But she is failing in mind and body. Mostly mind. She says she never naps.
She received a gift from my father when I was born of flowers and a featherweight sewing machine. He told her that now that she had a baby girl she could make little dresses for me. She never did sew much but my granny did when she visited . And I learned to sew on this machine. Happy birthday!
