when i grow up



A few years back my mum had come up from montreal to help me run one of my stores, I had just opened another
on the cape and thought she would enjoy the summer by the beach. My mum took to it very well in fact it i think people just came in to see her. My mum is lovely! anyways one day driving back from the cape i stopped at hanover, that is where my other shop was located. when I walked in I saw my mum in the most beautiful dress. I am immediately said "when did you get that?"her reply was" i made it last night form a tablecloth" she was a vision it would be impossible to describe her in it except to say it was if i was a little girl again looking at my mum and wishing i could be her when i grow up (still do everyday). For years now I have dreamt of that dress, on my last trip to Montreal she let me wear it all over the city and then told me to take it home....now i will never look like her in the dress, but for some reason- the feeling i got when i saw her in it, is the same feeling i get when i am wearing it!

I don't know what is the most fabulous, your relationship with your mother or this poem of a dress. I envy both very much.
