My Mom~Edythe Irene Smith March 17, 1915 ~ October 8, 1987
Mom, you were one of a kind. Sweet, gentle, loving, kind... but you didn't put up with any monkey business. You didn't like my rock & roll music, you hated red fingernail polish but as I grew up you provided me with other music so I'd learn to love it all and you bought me a bottle of nail polish remover. LOL You sat me at your knee and taught me about my loving Heavenly Father at an early age. You took me to Sunday School and church even when, as a surly teenager I really didn't want to go. You took care of me when I was sick. You played with me when I was well. You spent your days recuperating from major surgery, sewing (by hand) clothes for a doll you gave me for Christmas. You got me my first sewing machine & taught me how to use it. You taught me how to embroidery dish towels. You tried to teach me how to cut up a chicken even when I pointed out to you that "some day chickens will be available already cut up." You taught me how to weed the garden even when you knew I hated it. And when I had to milk Daisy when dad went fishing...you assured me that she wouldn't kick me. You taught me how to do things around the house, when I wasn't interested. You didn't get too upset when you said "Linda, clean your room" and all I did was move the stuff from one side to the other (your words). You giggled at the way I could stack the clean dishes in the dish drainer. You taught me about growing flowers and encouraged me to always have a flower garden no matter what my economic status might be. You said "Flowers even in a small pot are good for the soul." You were patient when I was learning to drive. You were there for me during the most difficult times of my life. By your example, you taught me how to be a mother...I pray I didn't disappoint you in that area. You loved me when I was the most unlovable.
Thank you mom for all that you were....I miss you so much. And I thank God for choosing you for my mom.
