Happy Mother's Day

This pin was my mother's. Its now over 50 years old. Not worth anything, at least in monetary terms, but it does hold a treasure of memories. She wore it every Mother's Day for 45 years or more.

I gave it to her when I was maybe 9 or 10 years old. I remember going shopping in a store called Fishman's with a few dollars in my pocket to shop for Mother's Day. It was like a 5 and 10 across the street from Woolworth's. Does anyone remember Woolworth's? I thought this pin was the cat's meow! I guess Mom did too.

She wore it for the last time 6 years ago. Its been with me since. It will be passed on.

Happy Mother's Day mom.

And Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's.

God's blessings and grace.
with love,
