Today Our Mom would have been 73! we celebrated with a Tea Party!

My sister far left, Two of my daughters in the middle.
My little poppie in the front 
and me far right!

Our Mom would have been only 73 today!
But she was only 71, when she went Home.

My sister put on a tea party! In honor of our Mom.
The girls and my sister ended up having the same colored hats.
Not planned!
They all looked fabulous like right out of
Downtown Abbey

Yours truly struggled with rushing after work
 this picture is in Sepia...because it makes me blend better.
It was kind of like awkward Calamity Jane meets downtown Abbey :)

My sister Had our Mom's Royal Albert China.
There were chocolate covered strawberries, eclairs and scones.
mini cupcakes and grapes
apple turn overs
and of course Tea!

These 3 were just beautiful! 
we shared memories...

The fun ones's
 the one's that make us laugh!

Our Mom's Dutch humor would make anyone laugh!

we laughed and chatted like all
girls do at tea parties...

we tried the sweets and the tea's :)

We honored this woman,
who left us soon, sooner then any of us ever had comprehended
and yes, WE MISSED HER!
And spoke of some of the sad times...

We love you Mom! we miss you. 
Sometimes I am still shocked you are gone...
sometimes I roam around and I don't think of it much...
(From April 2013-March 2014 was my mourning and struggle)
and then it hits me...
Today was one of those days!
You are loved and missed by all your kids and grandchildren and great grands
and friends and other family...

Today we all wanted to visit with you...
that will never change
Happy Birthday in Heaven Mom!


  1. Oh Peggy,
    What a wonderful way to celebrate your Mom! This post brings back so many memories. I
    love that you all dressed up (the hats are all out of this world), that you set a formal table with china, and then told stories about your Mom. She would have been so pleased to know you would do this.

    And that song about heaven...tears flowed. Thank you for sharing your heart, dear friend.
    May God bless you and keep you and hold you in the palm of His almighty hand!

    Loves and hugs and prayers, always prayers!

  2. Oh beautiful, friend- just beautiful and full of love and heart. How ironic that my mother's passing was so close to your mom's birthday. We shared celebrating the lives of our moms very close in time to one another.

    I feel like I've been gone for ages, and am so happy to come and read such a heartwarming post. I pray you are well and long to hear all about how you are doing soon! Love you honey~


Thank you for stopping by. Would love to hear from you!
