wonderful people

I had a very heart warming day....
I went over to my Dad's and while there one of his neighbors called and asked for me to please stop over before I went home....They have lived there a long time but i have to admit I never got to know them real well but my Mother was very friendly and in her later years they use to go to the health club and bowl together....I could not imagine what she wanted but I agreed to stop by....

Well much to my surprise was she was giving me two beautiful x-stitched pictures my Mother had given her many years ago...I never knew my mother had given them to her nor did any of my other sisters....
She told me that she had been thinking about my Mom, who passed away 10 years ago this month, she said each time she saw me she thought of my Mother, as most think I look alot like her...
any way it made me very happy and tearful...She also told me that a few months after she had given the pictures to her my Mother told her I asked about them....I do not remember this but any way she thought the pictures should be back in our family and a precious treasure for our family....
What a wonderful gift, and a precious memory of my Mother, who was a very generous person....
I told her that I had in fact showed my Mother how to do counted cross stitch....this is a gift I shall treasure for ever.....
I'm took pictures of them and will try to post, not sure how they will come out...

I thought this would be a loving tribute to my Mother since sunday will be Mothers day...
and the memory of the last 10 years without my Mother...she is missed a great deal by more than her family...

have a healthy week

ps there is a picture of my Mother and Me in my photo gallery from 1996 in case you wonder if we do look a

    Oh, that was a very nice thing for your dad's neighbor to do! Things like that should stay in the family, and it's nice you got them back. Enjoy! They do look like pretty pictures. You had a good student!

    Those are so pretty Kitt. I am glad you got them back. I have no patience for that kind of stuff although my twin sister and mom both do.

    Kitt, those are just beautiful pictures. I used to do counted cross stitch a long time ago. I did one similar to the first one. That was such a kind gesture to give them back to you.

    What a beautiful thing for your Dad's neighbor to do. Those cross-stitched pieces are something that I would do. I love scenes like those. I know these pieces mean so much to you and that you will be forever grateful to her.
