Love of a Child -Postcard Friendship Friday #309

I posted this vintage postcard in 2010 and decided it was time to put it up again.  I own a 100 year old cookbook, which details all the things a woman was responsible to do in the late 1800's.  

These amazing women tended a garden, grew their own food, milked the cow, made cloth and sewed clothing.  They made their own soap and cooked over a wood-stove.  All while watching over her children, teaching them as she went.  These are only a few things they had to do in the "olden days."  The author of the cookbook advises, "Be sure to sit down to do your chores, as much as is possible."  That is wonderful advice!

Yet, today the sentiment is true--children who's Mothers deeply love them are indeed blessed. I will always hold our own dear Mumsie in high esteem. She is beautiful, brave and kind.

Life is shorter than we think, dear Friends.  Take time out to hug your Mother and to love your children.

Happy Postcard Friendship Friday, dear Friends!

Hi Beth,
Loved your memory of your mumsy. My mom is 86 now and still living together with my father in their home of 54 years. Both are suffering Alzheimer disease and losing their memory slowly. To take care for them is sometimes a burden for my sister and me, but it's also making us a caring family. Happy PFF.
