Memories of Mom

I’ve been thinking about my mom quite a bit lately. These recent thoughts have centered around the lighthearted side of her that most people weren’t lucky enough to see. I love remembering her flatfooting in the kitchen while Dad whistled a tune and the old kids’ songs she taught me when I was young and still loved to sing with me when I was older. One of my favorite memories was when she was a school librarian (at either Roosevelt Elementary or Donna High School, I don’t remember which). During teacher orientation week at the beginning of the school year, she attended one session where the presenter, wanting to get everyone loosened up, taught them a new dance. Mom came home and just had to show it to me. I’ll never forget us in the kitchen with her trying to teach me the “Macarena”! Good times!

    Suzanne! That’s so sweet. How you wrote that, I can just see your mom doing those things with you. She was such a dear sweet lady.
