Hard Working Woman

My mother has never been called lazy. She has a hard time sitting still even now at 89 with severe hip pain. When she visits me, if I don't give her something to do, she will make work for herself. Once while I was away at work, I came home to find she had cleaned all the cracks in my sidewalks surrounding and on my property... with a knife!

I don't remember what project my mother had busied herself with that caused her to wear the soles clean off her work shoes. I hung the worst one on a plant hanger where it's been for a few years.

With my sister's illness, we all seem to be re-evaluating the things we hang on to. I was ready to finally throw these away and remember with a photo.

Wowzers that is a well worn, and much loved I'm sure, shoe.

We agree with Goose, but we must also add that you learned a lot from her too:)

Mom is wondering if she can come here and clear out the grass in the cracks here too:)

Yeah, some things are better remembered with a photo okay. Others, like jewelry, you might not want to throw out.
