Memories for Mother's Day

I was thinking about images that take me back to the safety and warmth of my childhood home.  So many of these memories are tied to my mom and grandmother.  Here are a few:

  • The smell of garlic sauteeing in olive oil.
  • Curling up under a hand-knitted afghan--in colors a bright mishmash of skeins from the sale bin.
  • Any song from Joan Baez's "Diamonds & Rust" album.
You reading this mom?  Happy Mother's Day!

What takes you back?  Leave a comment below.  Or just share it with your own mother-person.
