My Mom's Little Book

When my mother passed away three years ago, I took a little book with me that was hers.

She was a prolific letter writer, and jotted notes down for future letter writing in this book. I feel like I absconded with the essence of her when I took this book.

Here are some sample pages:

"Tube steak (hot dog)"

"Is the tail waggin' the dog?"

"Hope you're lookin' up like a rosebud high on the vine"

"Melt your Maybelline"

"4 leaf clover time"

"On to sippin' medicine"

"Take care of your body, it's a temple"

"Poems are made by fools like me, but only God can make a tree"

Then at the bottom of the page, in red ink:


Mom? What's this about high on the vine?
