Thank You Mom.....

Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

 All of us are a product of our upbringing...our environment...the result of our life experiences.  Parents work hard at having those be the very best they can be...the life lessons we learn...pats on the back and consequences..our home and in school...all of the things that make each of us who we are ....and we know that our Moms had a huge part in molding each of us to help us become the people we are Momtoday. My parents were the hugest positive influence in my life...and while they are not physically here......the values learned and life lessons experienced continue to serve me well. 

     We were very fortunate to have my Mom live with us the last six months of hoansy per life and have memories that we contnue to cherish..and I know she appreciated the time she had with us as well and often expressed her gratitude.

    Every Mother's Day we would have brunch and go to as many greenhouses as she wished to get her collection of pansies.  David made

her a flower press and she would press them, laminate them and frame them.  Sometimes she would take someone's obituaty and laminate it with that on one side and a pansy bouquet on the other. People to this day, have them as keepsakes.

      We believe how you live your life should honor the way in which you were raised...I know that I respect that every day of my life. 

       Today we honor her memory....and my Grandmothers as well who were both very strong women who set outstanding examples for me. Tbank you for being the very best teachers a daughter and granddaughter could ever hope to have in a lifetime.

            Happy Mother's Day to Everyone....Cherish the time you have and the Memories you were fortunate to be given.

Good morning, Sally and David,  some people reflect on memories.  Others are enjoying memories- in-the-making. Still others are experiencing some possible ambivalence.  It can't be refuted that we take our past to become who we are today.
