It’s been almost twenty years since my mother-in-law died and yet May, her month, still fills me with memories. Her birthday was May 9 which seemed so appropriate with its proximity to Mother’s day. She was the consummate mother. She always remembered the little things that really are the big things. Birthday cards were never late!! Her journals were filled with positives; not one critical word. She saw only the best in people.
She and I shared a love of birds, flowers, family, and even the name Barbara Bromley. She is missed by all who knew her, but the memories remain.
Happy Mother’s Day!
