When I was 39, I called my parents to let them know I was engaged… my mother’s response was is everything alright with you?
I was at my parent’s home one evening before my wedding; my mother was watching TV and knitting, which is what she did before bed; I saw a dress on the cover of her knitting magazine and told her, “I liked it”; the lightbulb went off and she said, “I can knit this dress for you in white for your wedding dress!”
Fast forward a few months later, my parents arrived on Maui with my beautiful wedding dress but my mom felt it did not have enough zing. So, off she went to Ben Franklin to buy Swarovski Crystals to sew on to the top. I believe she bought 100. The next day she says that they only covered 25% of what she wanted and went back and bought all the rest they had!
Last year my family had a rare event happen, five generations of women were able to come together and celebrate the new lives of our youngest, my newly born twin nieces. This event was extra special because what we didn’t know is it would be the last time this would happen.
