When Hubby and I were in Denver a few weeks ago, I met one of my husband's peers. We met for the first time and then went about our visiting, partying ways and I didn't give it much thought. A bit later in the night, we visited again. He asked me, "Why do you have such a stong handshake?". I already knew this but I thought for just a moment and the reply way easy, "Because my Mom taught me to do so". It is as easy as that and a very important lesson, it does make a difference, and I will always remember. I don't like a limp handshake, I think it has developed into a pet peev of mine. Whether it is true or not, a limp handshake says I am at half mast, and a firm one says I am here and ready to take on the day. A first impression is very important to me and one that I always remember of others.
Mom also taught me that money does not make a person. If you have manners and a bit of hummility a person can interact with anyone. I have found this to be true, as well.
So Mom, I made this necklace for you as a symbol of your motherhood all wrapped up with memories, nastalgia and life lessons made into a silver pendant of pride. YOU did a great job with us kids and we do love you with all our hearts. Sorry it is late, but I learned it from watching you.
See below for your new necklace,
a picture of Nick, Mom and I,
and a picture of a rose bouquet for you.
Sorry, no pics of all us kids :(
Happy Belated Mothers Day!
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I turned out like my mother,
after all !
And I am okay with this.
Love you MOM!!!!
Kristin, Jef and Nick
