I was so inspired by Maureen’s blog dedicating Mondays with stories about her mother,
(much to my mother’s dismay I’m sure) I decided to join too!
Me & Mom
Yep, that’s cute, adorable ME! My mom would be 23 years old in this picture. She still lives in the same house and that mirror still hangs in the dining room. She wore glasses all of my life (I’ll have to ask her when she started wearing them). I didn’t start wearing glasses until 30.
A few years ago my mom was ready for a new pair of glasses. It had been a few years since she gotten the pair she was wearing. She started complaining about not being able to see, especially at night. One day we were sitting in her dining room talking about making a new eye appointment for her. She asked to try on my glasses..so I handed them over. She put them on and exclaimed “OMG, the trees have leaves!!!” Yes, they have leaves I told her. She couldn’t see “actual” leaves with her glasses. Come to find out, she had the wrong eye glass prescription for a few years.
Only MY mother…
