Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

I'm finally rejoining the group via Coloradolady's Vintage Thursday meme. I used to be a regular but life got busy for awhile.
This picture hung in my mother's home, our old homeplace on the Tippecanoe River, for more than forty years. She always said that the picture depicted her three children, and the spacing in age looked close to what it is between my brothers and I. My two brothers are five and three years older than me.
I was thrilled that she gave it to me recently. She's been living with my oldest brother for over a year and a half, and has been dispersing her possessions between kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. At 92, it's time to do that. The colors are perfect for our household; and the memories that this framed print holds are priceless!
