“Happy Mother’s Day” to the “BEST!”
This picture of my MOTHER is the #1 – “picture” of a thousand words!
It is said – that a “picture” is worth a “Thousand Words” – and if – I ever saw a picture speaking a thousand words – this is the picture that takes the prize!
This is 1939 – and my brother, Denny Jr., was born on the 24th of January – and with a three week stay in the hospital – for Mama and baby – this picture is of us three – in late February.
As you can see – I am the most concerned as only a big sister can be… – always have been on the mosey side – since I was born in September – and as I hear … those that are born in September – seem to be on the highly critical side – that is – and in my very own words, we want everything done – “right” and done on “time” – and if not… we will speak up and let the whole wide world know – what is going on!
My MOTHER – was the 13th and last child in her FAMILY – and the second daughter – 15 years younger than her older sister, Irene Brady – and in those days – someone would be needed to take care of their elderly parents – and since that was not the program… since there was no Government Programs as we NOW have today… that will take care of the elderly so… in the “BRADY” family that was the plan for my MOTHER!
She was not allowed to take on – any working position outside of the home.
She also was not allowed to get married – as there was someone she did want to marry – but – her parents had other plans for her?
If you believe that which is written in Psalm 139 – then you can only give Thanks… for the results – that is – what my “MOM’s” life was like it was… and that which followed was also to be in her destiny.
I have to say say “THANKS” to my “MOM”… since she did follow the Plan that the Almighty had in store for her – including all of us – I can only say that – I feel all of the best of choices were predestined – to be – and that I am here having – nothing to complain about!
My “MOTHER” was the very “BEST” choice for me – I can only think – that when everyone takes the time to really think about their LIFE – and assess their complete situation – everyone will find that the “CREATOR of our LIVES” – did an excellent job!
“I miss you – “MOM” – and know that you are now in a much and far greater better heavenly place – than here – someday soon, we will all be celebrating together – and we will then… be rejoicing so much so – just to be – in that for greater and heavenly eternity .
So for and on this this “MOTHER”S DAY” that we are all celebrating here on Earth…. we are remembering all of the great times that we all enjoyed, then and now today … just remembering the LOVE we shared with lots of FUN living the good life together!
SO NOW and forever – I LOVE “YOU” – MOM!” – that is always and for ever…more – xoxoxoxoxo
Today and all this week is for remembering … MARIE BRADY – – this PHOTO is one that I always liked – – but my MOTHER did not like – – she never said exactly why – – and NOW … I never will find out – – so … if someone knows what I do not – – let me know??
When thinking back about some of the music that “MAMA” liked – – I have found that… I have enjoyed as well.
In fact when my sons were taking music lessons – – some of the songs that we LOVE – – my sons have also decided to learn to play on the piano – – some MUSIC is on the difficult side to learn – – but with practice and determination to please the ones you LOVE – – by playing that which they also did enjoy – – it helps and makes for much better practice till perfection is reached.
To be able to hear – – “Clair de Lune” – – for yourself… is worth a thousand words – – of which… I could not do the music justice… so listen and let me know what you think???
“Enjoy the Day”
