Dear Lori, Thank you, nice to hear from you today.
Love this honoring of your parents. Such special poems of love.
Dear MaryJo, Thank you for your kind comments.
Our daughter graduated from Bethany College, Little Sweden of America. When our grandchildren were born, I was thrilled to become Mor Mor, which is Mother’s Mother.
A lovely post, Ellen.
Dear Marylin, Thank you, and for sharing your memories as well. I did not know about “Little Sweden of America” and Mor Mor. I enjoy blogs from my grandparents’ part of the world, and can see how Wisconsin could be a new home. My mother’s parents were German and died before I was born. I think my art is from my mom’s mother, Grace. Blessings!
