Ketchup With Us #17

Blah, blah, blah. Ketchup With Us. Number seventeen. Yada, yada, yada. Hosting with Mel. Blah, blah, blah. Mother’s Day edition. Blah, blah, blah. And here’s mine. About a lady who needs NO INTRODUCTION.

Because right in the middle of breakneckedlypacking up THIRTY-SIX YEARS worth of clothing, kitchenware, bedding, electronics, furniture, tools, pictures, books, music and other cherished family artifacts, she stopped to make a practice test for my daughter who had an English quiz the next day.

Because she NEVER says no.

(Well, almost never.)

I love you, Mom.


Me, between the best moms in the world, future and present. 

For a quick explanation of this link-up, click here. In short, Mel and I will post a picture or video with a writing prompt on the 1st and 15th of every month. You can write your entry in any form. We love creativity. And, with each prompt, we’ll feature a writer from the previous link-up. Which reminds me …

  2. You are all so beautiful!! Love the photo. ❤

  3. That picture is perfect. I love the three generations. A line of very pretty women (and a little woman)! 🙂 Your very last line under the picture was my favorite. Well done!

  4. The photo of your three generations is lovely. You each have the same smile. I like too, what you said about the present and future moms.

  5. Aww…THAT is a fab pic! Frame it immediately. It’s perfect!

    Beautiful photo of you three. Isn’t that the most wonderful thing about moms? That you know they’ll be there; you can count on them to do anything for you. (almost 😉 )

    Thanks for honoring me with featured writer! xo

  7. I like how you recognize your daughter will be a great mom. Of my three daughter, my 8-year-old, the youngest, will be one. She loves children, is super loving, and talk about being a mom. What is it with you and Mel having moms that look like sisters?

    Lovely lineup, Michele

    • Thanks, Lance. I really need to point my mother’s attention to this blog post. She’s been so caught in her move that she probably missed it. But there are just too many compliments here for her to miss out on. 🙂

  8. Very lovely women in your family, even if one is a little one! Great blog as usual. 😀

  9. Great photo of the three of you. Reminds me I need to take a three generation picture too – my Mom and her girls.
