This year, more than ever, it felt right to us to look back...WAY back, to simpler times! When the word "Mom" provoked thoughts of a perfectly put together woman, always in a dress (never jeans) and most often donning an apron as well. She was most likely found in the kitchen, making dinner or baking an apple pie.
She was graceful, dependable and loving. Always available for a hug and you can rest assured that she would be more than happy to feed you at any time, day or night. Her job was tiresome but beautiful and she commanded the utmost respect from her beloved family. She was, after all, the Matriarch.
