Happy birthday to my mom! She is celebrating her 76th birthday today. She was born to a family of 10 siblings and she is the middle child. My grandparents were paddy planters and life was tough and the family didn’t have much to survive on. Hardships taught my mom to be resilience and despite quitting high school when she was 14 years old she managed to have a good job and she retired in 1998. For the past 20 years, she has been enjoying her retirement by doing the stuff she loves – sewing, gardening, and beads working. I wish I can show you her work but I am staying far away and I don’t have the pictures with me. Anyway, happy birthday mom, and may God protect you and be with you wherever you go!
My mom as a teenage girl in 1958. Love the dress and the flip flops!
