Six Word Fridays:TRUE

Photobucket

My eyes smile just like yours,
At least that’s what I’m told.
Your sense of funny. Mine too!
I have your love of shoes!
You are in my heart forever.
I have become my mother. True.

Linking to Six Word Fridays!

  1. Poignant entry Pix. You look a lot like your beautiful mother. I get it… there are six words in each line. Wonderful poetry and an amazing old family photo!

    1. Good Morning Theresa! The little cardinal girl is not focused and you know that drives me nuts but I was desperate for a new header for Dec 1st so I got that up there. I am hoping to get something better and more Christmas-ie up soon!

    1. I didn’t even think I was writing a poem, I was just trying to string 6 words together! Mama cardinal is out of focus and driving me nuts. She is going to have to go when I get something else to stick up there. But she is a sweetie! I bet you have posted Tammy, Ima have to go look!

  2. I’m such a fan of heirloom photos ~ and this one is beautiful! You seem, also, to have captured her spirit with your words too. I spend so much time trying NOT to be like my mom…it’s great to see someone who’s thrilled see their mom in themselves!

    1. I love old photos! My Mom was a character and there are plenty of ways I didn’t/don’t want to be like her. But as I get older I understand her better. I tend to concentrate on the ways we are alike that makes my heart happy. She has been gone since August of 1987. I miss her every single day and think about her more times a day than I thought possible. I catch myself saying and doing things just like her and I just have to laugh! I feel her closer during Christmas.

    1. Janice Hello to You this December Friday! Hope you found out who your snow shoveling elf happens to be. She was very pretty, I think I can say that. She was very funny too but, well you know. CH and I were just talking how complicated she was and how complicated my relationship was with her and geesh I don’t know. I am happy and peaceful this moment, this hour, this day. That is what I am working on πŸ™‚ Thanks Janice.

    1. I know Christina! What is it with that Mother/Daughter thing? It is a deeeeeep subject. I love that photo. I have been going through old photos, I don’t hardly know any of the people I am seeing and no one to ask. Crazy! As if I don’t have enough crazy making things to do!

  3. A sweet tribute to your pretty mama, Pix! I lost mine in 1977 and I miss her, too. She was a bit complicated, too. I always thought her eyes looked a bit sad sometimes. She didn’t have the life she dreamed of, I know. She didn’t really like the farm life. But she was a good person and loved her family. She was happiest during the holidays, I think. Christmas was a favorite of hers.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you Cheryl! Cheryl you could have written that about my Mom with the exception of farm life. Our relationships with our Moms always seem to have conflict. I just think at 60 now, I understand. Enjoy your weekend! Trees are going up here I hope πŸ™‚ I hear it raining, is that possible? Wintry mix Monday. Bah!

  4. This is a beautiful tribute to your gorgeous Mom. I am like you and have found in my own life the truth of my becoming my Mom is a bittersweet one. I wish she were here to enjoy it with me. πŸ™‚

    1. Oh I know E.C., I know. Quite a few of us feel that with this post. Wish we all could get together and chat about it. Our story with our Moms is never done. I wish you had your Mom too. Probably like me, you would see it all so differently now. Take Care.

    1. Hello Gracie Sam! Thank you for stopping by and the kind words. It’s very hard to be away from our Mothers. I understand how you feel as I was away from my Mom most of my married life because of my husband’s work. I see you have put a smile at the end of the sentence where you say you have become like your Mom, so that is a very good thing πŸ™‚

  5. I love how you turned that idea right on its head– you don’t seem to be sighing in resignation, ‘oh, I’ve become my mother,’ that I hear so often people say, but celebrating it! πŸ˜€
