Happy Mother’s Day!

I recently came across a picture on my iPhone from February 2013 at my grandmother’s house that still makes me grin: three generations of women washing their faces before bed.




3 Generations


That’s my mom on the far left, my grandmother “Fooie” (Ruthie) in the middle, and me on the right in a very flattering shower cap and sporting my Texas Quilt Museum t-shirt.

This nightly ritual at my grandmother’s place–all together washing our faces–has been a ritual in place since I was a baby. It was the favorite time of day for me as I listened to all the stories, family gossip, and of course was given a lot of beauty tips and life advice.

To all of you moms out there: new moms, old moms, soon-to-be moms, step-moms, mothers-in-law, single moms, grandmothers, teachers, fur baby moms, great grandmothers, Big Sisters, and nurturing women everywhere…I wish you a very Happy Mother’s Day!
