Missin' Momma

Today would have been my mom's 88th birthday. She passed in the fall of 2009.

I went down to her flat today and looked around. Just wanted to be close to her things. I found an old purse of hers in the closet and pulled it out. I thought I had cleaned everything out pretty well; but I found this short grocery list. 

I always loved her handwriting. For someone who barely finished elementary school because of her family's hardship, she had beautiful penmanship. Mom was always very self conscious of her spelling and kept a small dictionary on her table. I had to giggle when I read "Cricket" lighters instead of just lighters. Wonder what that was about? lol

I miss her little ways very much.
