Tablescape Thursday In Memory Of My Mom

This weeks tablescape is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Annella. I don't know where I would have been without her. She adopted me when I was 2 days old. She loved me and took care of me. She took me to church every Sunday. She prayed with me every single night at bed time, kissed me good night and said "I love you", without fail. She volunteered at school functions and helped with Girl Scouts. She bought me a closet full of pretty dresses, while she rarely ever bought herself any new clothes. She was the most unselfish person I ever knew. She also had a great sense of humor and my friends all adored her. I miss her so much, especially during certain times of the year such as Mother's day. God so very, very blessed me by choosing her to be my mom, and I'm so grateful to the Lord, because I know He''ll let me see her again someday.

The dishes that I set were some of my mom's favorite everyday dishes when I was growing up. The pink glass is part of a set that was displayed in our dining room when I was growing up as well. The baby in the picture is me with my wonderful mom.

I would like to thank Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for always hosting Tablescape Thursday. Please click on the link: http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ to view all of the very talented tablescapes. :O)
