I debated calling this post, “My Mom Was Awesome!” Because she was. Those of you that are new to my blog don’t know that my mom died at the age of 65 in 2011 of ovarian cancer. She was such a good mom. More than a good mom. Loving and kind, Funny and beautiful. I miss her every day.
One thing that makes me think of my mom is The Hustle. She loved to dance and she was good! My brother and I would get her to dance for us. We would laugh and laugh as she did The Mashed Potato, The Twist and The Hustle to name a few. Today I heard the song The Hustle and I started crying. Not because I was sad but because I was so happy!
This picture was taken in the mid-eighties. We lived in a small close-knit neighbourhood and there seemed to be a party every weekend. In this picture my mom decided she wanted to dance so rolled up her pants and got a neighbour. She slicked back his hair and off they went. It is funny looking back. I forgot that my mom was ever this young. I am guessing she was about 32 here.
