Today would have been my Mama's 87th birthday. It's funny I can't imagine her that age. She passed away almost 19 years ago. Way too young. I don't think a day goes by without thinking of her. My daughter and son were very close to her. She was an amazing Nannie to them. It was such a shock to lose her.
Mama had a "big" personality. That proved to be hard for a shy, sensitive daughter. She always encouraged me to be more outgoing and social. You see, she was the shy, sensitive one in her family. I guess, we as parents always want our children not to suffer through the same things we did and can over compensate as parents.
This sherbet dish is one of several that belonged to my Mama. She always made chocolate pudding in these for us when we were little. I love having them.
I grew very close to my Mama as I grew wiser. I miss you Mama and I will always love you. ♥
