Mom had several loves in her life, other than Dad. The top two, gardening and reading, were tied, I think, but there was a close third as well. She knitted a lot. I often got knit socks from her for Christmas or my birthday and relished wearing them, becoming very picky about how they were washed. Luckily, I do 90% of the wash at my house anyway…wait a minute…whatever…

I was especially touched by a recent gift given to me by a friend and patient, let’s call her Sharon. The gift was a beautiful pair of hand knit socks which brought back memories of Mom, who passed away nearly three years ago now. I want to share a picture of her gift and thank her for her kindness. I took this picture on my dresser with a picture of me and Mom in the background.

Thanks Sharon!
