Show and Tell Friday

Show and Tell This show and tell is in memory of my mom. Next Tuesday, May 13 will be the 11th anniversary of the day my mom passed away at 52 years old. We spent her last Mother's Day at her bedside, my brothers, my father, and myself, and reminisced about our childhood - some of the happier times. I like to think she knew we were there and enjoyed our stories and laughter.
I have lots of things that were my mom's, that are special to me. For Mother's Day I thought I'd show her pin. Mom didn't have much jewelry, but I remember that she always wore this simple gold circle when she dressed up.
I wear the pin to all of our special occasions - both of my brothers' weddings, my kids' confirmations and graduations, and to church on Mother's Day. To me, this is a way to have Mom there with us.
To see what everyone else has posted for show and tell this week, go visit Kelli's blog. Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother's Day!
