The Bus Ride

Shared by Carolyn Richardson on September 13, 2012

I am reminded of a bus ride coming back from downtown Baltimore many years ago my mom and I took. As the bus passed by this little supermarket I commented "you know mommy I have seen people go in there with 5, 10 dollars and come out with 5 or 6 bags"

She looked at me in amazement and said "really"?, then she stared at me and we both burst into laughter...that's how it was sometimes with her...we just knew!  

My Mom's Hair

Shared by Carolyn Richardson on August 21, 2011

My mom had the prettiest hair, when she allowed it to grow it was very full and thick but when she cut it, it was so curly, large natural curls and very soft and fine.  You see I know this because I constantly admired my mom and watched the things she did closely, her hair, makeup and her sense of style.

Funny, I didn't know it then but I look in the mirror and see my mom staring back at me, I even wear my hair one style the way she did....imitation is the highest form of flattery!

My mom had the prettiest hair....

It hurts when I do this

Shared by Carolyn Richardson on April 11, 2011

When I was growing up and something would hurt me I would tell my mom, "mommy it hurts when I do this or that" and she would say ..."Then don't do that".

That was my mom!

Missing you more than you could possibly imagine!


Mommy's thoughts on Amusement Parks

Shared by Carolyn Richardson on April 5, 2011

While visiting a amusement park many years ago I asked my mom was she gonna ride on anything and her comment was "yeah, nothing no higher than a hoppy horse and no faster than a merry go round"

That was my mom, God I love her and miss her so!!!


The Woman could not DANCE!!

Shared by Carolyn Richardson on April 2, 2011

My mom could cook very well, my mom could sing extremely well and she could dress a house like nobody's business but..... THE WOMAN COULD NOT DANCE!!!  I don't know what happened, but dance she could not.


That's ok mother, your'e dancing a brand new kind of dance now, one I pray I will learn the steps to.

Your oldest,


Some things She Loved

Shared by Carolyn Richardson on March 31, 2011

My mother loved peanut chews, any kind of chocolate. Tootsie rolls anything and she loved coconut that was probably her second favorite thing especially if it was covered by CHOCOLATE!!!

She liked strawberry shortcake, corned beef sandwiches and chili dogs with onions from Belair market in Baltimore!

She made the best potato salad you ever wanted to eat, people often told her that she should sell it.

My mom could sew and dress a house very well, growing up our home was always complemented on how nice it was put together.

These are just a few things my mom loved!
