My mom was the one who was busy sewing us new clothes to wear, making us delicious meals to eat including the one where she just threw stuff together and called it a "Hupe Special!" Sometimes they were just delicious, too!
She is the one who patiently made me ride my 2-wheel bike back and forth on the sidewalk in front of our house so I would finally learn how to get started on my own. I mastered "riding" the bike long before I mastered being able to start without someone holding the seat! (Thank goodness for nice neighbors who would help me if fell or had to stop for some reason! LOL!)
My mom helped my sisters and I all learn how to sew our own clothes, too. She must have been patient to do that! LOL!
She instilled in me a love of classical music through hearing it on the stereo and from taking piano lessons. I enjoy playing my piano, although, I can't always say I liked practicing my lessons!
