I suppose if I was a smart blogger I would wait until Mom's birthday to post this picture of her since her birthday is just a few days away. Esther Jean Hansen was born April 8, 1934. I think she is about 14 in this picture. The same age as Katie is now. If you can't find her, mom is the very pretty girl in the back row, far left. Look at that red lipstick, those long limbs, that sweet face!
Grandma Hansen gave this picture to me when I was in my early 20's. She said that she made mom's costume and helped with another. This was a school dance performance...not a private dance class.
I come from a long line of dancers. :o)
(Esther and Janet 1972ish)
Mom looks happy and proud in this picture.
I think she was. I hope she was.
All she had time to be was a girl and then a mom.
How fortunate I was to have such a mom.
I love her more and more as the years go by.
True love sticks.
“I realized when you look at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.” ~Mitch Albom
