ten things about my mother

I'm going to start this series with my mom.  I do not intend to say anything negative about anyone, nor say anything about them that they would object to.

Ten things about my mother:

1.  She believed that the Church of Christ was the one true church.

2.  She never had anything but good to say about her parents.

3.  She could wallpaper an old run-down house and give it a whole new look.

4.  She worked hard, as long as she was able.

5.  She wrote an occasional poem.

6.  She loved to make quilts.

7.  She wrote letters and sent cards to friends and relatives daily, throughout her life.

8.  She was faithful to my father throughout their marriage.

9.  She loved music, and taught me to sing alto.

10.  She was my biggest fan.

 YES< the women that went through FIRE and ICE and LOTS of HARD
LABOR always had time to do wonderful things for people.

 Just dont see that sort of thing today.  Everyone is self centered and
looking out for themselves.  WHAT wonderful times there were down on the farm .  WAS 50 till I realized that the HARD work bgave lots of rewards.
Our neighbor just sold out his develpement rights for 1 1/2 Million.
Still has the farm to sell.  We had a larger palce an only got  150,000
5 years ago.  THE only trouble is he can not breathe any more from too many CIGS.  They worked like slaves.  Never took time to have a good time. Now soneone else can enjoy it.

SURE DO miss the parties and trail rides through the valley.
Today the girls only want to ride around the circle. SPOILINg the horses and making them SOUR.  Would be better if they would take themon the trails an break the moneatony of the RING./
