Words according to my mother, Patsy.
My daughter asked me to write something for Vintage Thingie Thursday. My thoughts on vintage are.....

I have two treasures that meet that definition - my two sisters, Joyce and LaVoice. Of course we are all vintage as all of our ages are in the 70's.
Both my sisters have been such a blessing and support to me all of my life and have always been there for me. I am thankful we have always been close. I was the youngest and Joyce my middle sister spent a lot of time with me when we were young. I think she thought I was her daughter. So during my early years, I developed a close relationship with her.

As time goes by, changes come. I have had the opportunity in my latter years to get to know better and develop a close relationship with my older sister LaVoice. And that has been wonderful.

So, I have had the best of both times and I love both of my sisters dearly and am very thankful to have them. They will always be my dear beloved sisters, no matter what age we are.
***Did any of you notice that in all of these photos, that these three girls are situated in the same order? I just thought I would point that out.

Since it is November, Thanksgiving month, I want to acknowledge a big thank you in the memory of my mother. Unfortunately she passed away at the age of 54, but left a world of love to us girls.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ My mother, ThelmaGrowing up, we never had much, but what we did have was love. Mother loved us, sacrificed for us, instilled character, honesty and moral values in all of us girls. My mother was a wonderful housekeeper, loved to decorate and was an excellent cook. She really instilled in me the love for Christmas. She would decorate with all the bright colored items we had and we always has a tree cut from the woods. We had little, but mother made Christmas special because she would always strive to do so.
Thelma, this is my mothers pin, this is very old. Thanks to LaVoice for providing this pin for a photo to be able to show this vintage treasure.
Thank you to the honor of my mother and to my two vintage treasures: my sisters, Joyce and LaVoice.
Thank you mom, for your memories from childhood and taking part in Vintage Thingie Thursday. My mom is a treasure herself, and is as unique as they come. A rare find. She is like her own mother in so many ways, most importantly, she has always been there for me and I know she loves me.
I hope you have had a good time this month reading about the treasures in my life. I enjoyed sharing these special people with all of you this month. They are all a blessing to me and I am thankful for each one.
