    What a wonderful and vivid tribute to your dear mother, Pat.  I love the "mama's hands" theme and can imagine your mother and how engaged she was in life!  My mother was a fantastic knitter and crocheter, learned at the park when she was a young girl, however, at 98 now, she finds that her hands just won't work like they used to and she misses making hand-made gifts like she used to.  Thanks for letting me know about this piece and I appreciate your comment on my tribute to my mom as well:  http://huff.to/RysuRm.  It's always nice to share positive stories about our mothers!

      Yes, Beverley, it is nice to be able to share positive stories about our mothers as well as other positive stories. There is often so much negative out there in print, it is just nice to be able to read something pleasing and fullfilling.

      Thanks for sharing your Mother’s story. It is amazing.

      Peace to you.

      Pat

    I love my Mother's hands! I even put a picture of her beautiful hands on FB to honor her on Mother's Day! There is such sweet love in the hands of our mothers. And, love the reference to the "button box"! We had one too.  I had forgotten 🙂

      Martha, there is so much in our mother’s hands.. so many memories like the button box. Last fall when I was visiting her and helping her with a sewing project I noticed her ‘pin box.’ It is one she had used for as long as I can remember but I didn’t know the story behind it until she told me last fall. I’ll have to write a story about it sometime.. it is interesting.

    What a lovely way to frame a tribute to your Mother, Pat.  Over time, just through your writings, we've come to feel we know her in our own way … and you just rounded out more of the picture.  Wish her a belated Mother's Day from us all!
