My Favorite Dress from the '50's era,

  This simple little dress from the 1950's belonged to my mother-in-law.  When I look at it, I am reminded of her bright red hair, her spitfire personality and her kindness to everyone. She was petite, standing around 4' 11'' tall.  She had one daughter who married young and moved away; leaving my mother-in-law with five boys and a husband to cook and clean for.
    She raised a big garden; canned vegetables and fruit for the family, helped mow the yard and still had time for a welcomed visit when someone stopped by. The thing I remember the most about her was her love for her family, her love of the simple life, and her love for God.

  1. I can just see her in that with pretty heels and a beautiful smile! I miss those days, but know the next time we see her she will be wearing something even more beautiful and a brighter smile!
