When I was growing up, people would say that I look like my mother.
That was OK because my Mom has always been a beautiful lady, inside and out!
Shortly after Andy and I were married, we moved to a new neighborhood. A woman came up to me at church and asked if I knew (she said my mother's name). I told her that the person whose name she mentioned is my mother. She said that she used to work with my mom 30 years before and I looked just like her.
My mom is now 88 years old!. (Don't tell her I told you) That's more than 30 years older than me. She's reasonably healthy and looks good for her age.
My Dad had to have an angiogram on Thursday. I went to the hospital with my parents. Mom and I went to the gift shop to buy some gum. While paying for the gum, the woman working there, looked at both of us and said, "I KNOW that you two are sisters!"
I was speechless. No one has ever accused me of being my mother's sister! Mom said, "No we're mother and daughter. The woman looked a little sheepish. Then my Mom said, "Guess which one is the Mother!" I immediately left before the woman had time to answer.
Maybe it's time to go back to coloring my hair. Perhaps then people will mistake me for Jill's sister! (In my dreams)
Happy Mother's Day to all of you!
A very special Mother's Day to my own dear Mom/sister!
