The White Dress

The White Dress

Published by Martha on May 4th 2021

Should we remember our mothers in a particular month? I say NOT. My mother passed away over 3 years ago...and not a day goes by that I do not remember her. Her looks, her warmth, love & wisdom by sharing her good advice with all her children.

As far as I can remember my mother was deaf and could only see with one eye. That hazel eye was precious to us all.

She was born during the great depression & as most of you know saving money was top in their list. She made me the wise shopping girl I am. I miss her. Her laughter, great advice and that hazel eye.

My mother went blind a year before her death, she lost the sight of her hazel eye, her window to us all. But before that happened I took her shopping. She loved to go shopping with me and make me try dresses…(Yes I became her with my own daughter...that’s another story). Anyways she liked how one dress in particular looked on me...a white somewhat sparkling dress. I really did not like it, but I bought it anyway because she liked the way it looked on me.

I never wore has been hanging in my closet for over 6 years.

Lately cleaning out my closet, I see the dress and remember the beautiful shopping day I had with my mother and I can’t seem to wear it for some reason or get rid of it.

Should I leave it in my closet? It is not hurting anybody is it?

Our mothers are special...hug them (only if you & her have been vaccinated)

or give them the biggest virtual hug possible...tell them how special they are. Btw thank your mother in law too for giving you that wonderful husband of yours, they’re special too you know.
