Miss you today on your birthday Mom! Love BM.

Mom was always one for notes. Sometimes they were elaborate; sometimes just hen's scratchings, but she always got her point across. This baby book was special to her. First born, first chance to log in those weekly thoughts, dreams, stats in her own unique handwriting. For four years away at college, I got a weekly letter keeping me posted on the comings and going of family life back in Maine. Along with a mother's words, there were always brownies or cookies baked between the lines. I always get a warm feeling when I come across her script on a page like this or in an old family recipe for bread or beans.
