On this day in 1919....

one of the most AMAZING women I know was born! She was Clara Mae King, a.k.a. "Me-Me" to me and my cousins.
----------------------------------------------
She mothered FOUR BOYS including one set of TWINS (my daddy being one of them). When I think I have it rough with THREE BOYS, I often think of her and how she did it with cloth diapers and no running water in the house.
----------------------------------------------
She is also a HUGE reason I love scrapbooking, card-making and paper-crafts. I would go spend weeks at a time with her and we would alter boxes, sew, paint, anything I wanted to do, she would allow me to and be right there to teach me.
----------------------------------------------
She's been gone 9 years already and I miss her TREMENDOUSLY!!! I wish she was here to share my passion of scrapbooking and give me advice on living in a house full of boys!! Did you know that she saved EVERY SINGLE card anyone ever gave her (I know because we had to go through them all when we cleaned out her house)....I wish I could send her one of my handmade cards right now!
----------------------------------------------
Happy Birthday, Me-Me....I LOVE YOU and I MISS YOU!!!
