A Memory for Mother!
Hello Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writers! So many great writing prompts courtesy of Mama Kat. It's always hard to pick just one. Last week I attempted the vlog; this week I'm not so tempted. So I'm going with prompt # 4.) Ode to your mother...write about a special memory you have of your mom in honor of Mother's Day.
My Mom, what can I say.. she is losing a piece of her memory everyday. It's not getting better and only will get worse so I need to savor the memories she has and those I have of her. I think the thing about my Mom that shines is her love for her grandchildren and the way she lights up and smiles when they are around. I remember the time she discovered my son was ticklish on top of his knees. He was dressed as a dragon for Halloween. My Mom would tickle my son's knee and my little dragon would spew giggles instead of fire. Oh how we laughed. If only I could go back to that day and hold on to time that is slipping away... just for a giggle and a smile on my Mom's face.
On a funnier side. We loved to mess with my Mom because that's what kids do. All 4 of us! I now have a deep respect for all that my Mom must have gone through. Sometimes I thought my Mom was crazy and then realize that we drove her crazy. Yes I do believe my Mama was Losin It! Dont' we all! And who is the best person to pull a prank on? Mom...of course and that's we did. Mom left us in the car to run into Safeway. We had our hilarious, childhood friend, Margaret, in the car with us. Somehow we concocted the idea to move the car on my Mom and see what she would do (yes, we were much older at the time and should have known better.. although I don't think any of us were of driving age!). So we moved the car and in fits of laughter watched my Mom Lose It. I could tell she was swearing under her breath. Lucky for us she wasn't really mad (cuz that was never good!). She was more annoyed and mildly amused. We asked her what she was mumbling.. and she replied "Those DAMN kids!!!". Mom, all I can say is that I'm sorry your DAMN kids drove you crazy. Mine do too. Crazy with LOVE:)
Love You Mom for all the giggles, fun times and love. Thanks for the memories!
