Best Mom Memories

Share Your Favorite Memory With Your Mother

She was there with a hug after every spill and filled you with advice before sending you off into the world. As moms, we are chief boo-boo healers and lunch-makers. We are also daughters filled with memories of our special moments of our own moms. Here are my top five memories with my mother:

  1. She was at the end of the lane when I swam my first lap across the pool.
  2. Standing in her bedroom as we tried on her beautifully hand-sewn Halloween costumes each October.
  3. The special mother-daughter shopping trips we took and then hid our goods in the trunk until dad was fast asleep.
  4. The sound in her voice when I called to tell her I was engaged (my father hadn't told her that my now husband had called a few days earlier).
  5. When I handed her my first child to hold an hour after he was born.
