My Mother

I was truly blessed when I was born into this world. God gave me the best parents that anyone could ask for. They married young, struggled to make ends meet, and always made sure we had what we needed. I have 4 siblings, so we were a large family. But, my parents always found time to be where they needed to be when it came to one of us. We had more than enough love and support through the years. Although we lost my dad 14 years ago, my mother still continues to be there when we need her. We saw a strong and independent side of her when our father left this earth that we never knew existed. The five of us are still very close and, along with our mother, we are a strong circle of love. I am working on a heritage album of my parents that I hope to finish by the end of 2009. The layout below is my mother on her wedding day. She was a young bride at 19. Her ballerina length gown was exquisite. I love the lace jacket and all of the buttons. My sister has the shoes in her possesion, but I was fortunate enough to receive the gown itself!
