Oh, sweetie, this is beautiful! I, too, am a redhead ... PINK was not a color that a red head, in my time anyway, was
allowed to wear as it wasn't our color. Only brown, blue, green. I am smothered in pink once I grew up ... your Mother is no doubt dwelling in the land of pinks in Heaven. RIP

Thank you for your visit today. I appreciate your dropping by. Do come again.

I hope you will pop by to help us bring 'angel love' for a young girl who is sick.

Thank you.
Have a beautiful PS weekend ~
Marydon

What a wonderful tribute to your mother. I love the song. He is very good and just my style of singing. I love country music. I lost my mother very young in life. She was only 54 and passed away in the mid-sixties. Thank you for the nice comment and I enjoyed our visit.

Hi Kandy,
Thank you for visiting my blog for Pink Saturday. I love the picture in your header of the mother and child. What beautiful angelic faces they have. I love pictures of mothers with their babes. My children are grown, 30 and 23 this year and I really don't know where those years slipped away to. While I was in the grocery store the other day a father and his toddler where finishing their shopping. She was dressed all in pink and she was so interested in everything. It took her quite some time to manage leaving the store. The father looked up at me and apologized for her taking so long. I replied, "No problem, mine were that size not too long ago." The interaction warmed my heart. I wished afterward that I had told him to hold onto the moments as they would quickly pass.
Children are the best thing we can do in this world. I just wanted to share that with you. Have a wonderful day. Keep your memories in your heart.

That is so sweet. It's such a blessing to have a mom who guided, loved and comforted us so well in life we feel it even in their absence.

In the end, pink is a great color for a red head. :0) I know from experience.
A beautiful tribute to your mama. Then and now!

How special is this and how wonderful that you have it on video!! I never thought of "craving" pink, but I LOVE it! I'm going to have to use that because I do love pink! Redheads are my favorite - I think they are so beautiful!

Hello!!
Thanks so much for your visit and kind comments!
I loved watching this video of your mom and your brother and you are right, your Mom was a pretty redhead!
It will be 8 years since my Mom passed away at the end of this month. Losing our Mom's is something that we never forget and eventually learn to live with....

Hugs,
Deb
