This is the only photo of mom as a young child.
She was born during the depression and times were tough at home. This photo was taken when a traveling photographer came to the house one day and my grandma decided to have pictures taken. I am so glad she did! Mom. . . . this is one of my favorites and I know it's one of yours too!
I love photos of family. The old photos are especially near and dear as they let us peek into the lives of family before even we ourselves were born!
Mom still loves to read. In fact I gave her a book the other day that she finished already. That must mean she isn't doing much stitching. :)
