I Am Just Like My Mother

       "You are just like your Mother!"   I have heard this said by my Father my whole life! Before his mind and sweet disposition was robbed by Parkinson's Disease it was a term meant to be enduring.  When I heard it in the latter.....not so much!
          But the truth being, I am very much like my mother, whom a lot of you know as Betty, Through My Back Door.  And although I said you would never find me writing a blog it really should not be that shocking that here I am making my first post!
        It was Mom who taught me to make a house a home and to surround myself with the things I love.  She was the spiritual leader of our home and the one who taught me to love and serve the Lord.  We enjoy doing the same things and each others company, so I own it with pride that I am just like her!
    I am a Christian, a wife of 33 years, a mother to 3 wonderful children who are all married to great people who I consider my own. I have 2 perfect grandchildren who call me Nonny!
    As I embark on this new journey in blog land where I not only read your blogs but share with my own, I hope to convey what makes me love my home! Why my heart is here.  Be it ever so humble, there truly is no place like it.


  1. You are a much better person my dear, than your mother will ever be. Hey we have become Holly and Angela!

  2. Welcome to Blogland Deb.I could say,it's about time too but I won't. :D

  3. So glad you are going to be blogging! I'll be following you! :)

  4. Oh, Deb so good to see you starting a blog. Your Mom is very special, she was always so positive when I was going through my cancer last year and I always felt so good that she was keeping me in her prayers. So, you could have no better compliment than "You are just like your MOther". I feel like I know both of you already.

  5. seems like we already know you through your sweet Mom. How wonderful to have your blog to look forward to as well. Enjoy writing it and know that we all will enjoy learning more about you, your family and sneaking a few peeks at your Home ;-). I have been told I am just like my Mother so many times in my 6 plus decades and will always take it as a a very healthy and active 83 years young she is just who I would love to be like! Best of luck with your blog and I will be following for sure...


    1. Hello Deb.....if you are just like your Mother then I would be so proud! She is a sweetheat!
