Tribute to My Mother



Three years ago today my dear mother passed away. We all miss her so much!!! She was so beautiful, smart, loving, funny, talented, classy, and amazing!! She was a pro at cooking, designing, crafting, decorating, sewing, caregiving, building, mothering, grandmothering, wife-ing, sistering, daughtering and so much more. She taught each of us so much about life and love and handling disappointments and celebrating victories. We are so blessed that she gave so much of herself to each of us. We love and miss you so much, Mother!!

Jackie, this was a beautiful tribute to your Mother and the slides show so much of how important she was to you and all those around her. The song was a perfect match and I can only imagine how many tears you spilled while putting this together...I had to get a tissue myself....
nicely done!

Jackie,
The slide show is wonderful. I don't often take time to watch many things on the internet. You did a wonderful job of sharing your mom's life through pictures and the song was hauntingly lovely. I also needed a tissue. You should check out some of Kathy Mc's slide shows. I do so love the slide shows of her grandchildren.

Jackie, what a moving tribute to your mother! I have to confess it brought tears to my eyes too. And, it reminded me to be nicer to my own mother who has been driving me a little crazy lately.
