Daughters

Thank you to a new follower, Marty, from "Welcome Words", who writes a beautiful blog with lots of posts I am looking forward to reading.

Also thank you and welcome to Luckybunny, a new follower.

The fact that anyone reads my blog amazes me, as I am not a writer!  Never would I have dreamed anyone would follow my blog.  Thank you.  I am so excited!

You know when you see something every day, you reach a point where you no longer see it, even though it's still there.  Like these pictures of my daughters.  This is Lynn...


 This is Andee...

An old double frame holding these two pictures from the early 1970's, sits on my dresser.  Every morning, when I sit in front of the mirror at that dresser, these sweet little girls are there too.  Most mornings I don't even notice, but then some mornings they catch my eye.  I pick up the pictures and think, where have the years gone?  My little Lynn with the blue eyes and freckles across her nose, and my little Andee with those dark brown eyes...as mama used to say, black as little chinkapins!  

Is there anything any better in this world than feeling your child's little arms around your neck?  That's me holding Andee after a fall that hurt her mouth.  Lynn and my Mother both came running to comfort Andee too.

Oh my!  These 70's hairdo's!  It took a bunch of teasing, but it stayed in place!




This picture was taken in Smyrna, Tennessee in 1965.  Andee was only a few days old.  That is a happy smile on my face!


Any of you who read Lynn's blog, "A Mothers Journal" will know how much she loves flowers and dresses and purses.   Well it started at a young age...


Remember the old saying or poem, "A son is a son til he takes a wife.  A daughter is a daughter all of her life"?  I would love to have had a son too, but daughters are really special.  

Thank you for stopping by.

Love,
Henny Penny

  2. Oh, Mama, you are the best mama in the world. I told someone the other day you had ESP. At first he thought I was serious, but then I explained that I always thought you could read minds, because you always knew what I wanted or was thinking before I even said it. You were always paying attention. I love those pictures of Andee and me. You made those outfits, didn't you? And your hair is just right! You sure did rock the big hair!!! And look at Grandma. I miss her. I love you!!!

  3. Good morning Henny! Your hair is fabulous, many folks here are wearing their hair like that again - what goes around, comes around... right? You were so young! Any way, those are great photos of Lynn and Andee...you are sweet to blog about them. It is true, though, that we sometimes take our sweet photos and mementos for granted and never think about them until one day... thanks for sharing them, we see that Lynn has kept true to her love of clothes and flowers/plants.etc. Have a great day .. Terry

    1. Hey Terry! Now I did like big hair. I still do. I don't know if my arms would hold up to do all that teasing now. Hope you have had a good day, Love, Henny
