Wilmington is a charming little city, full of history and southern ambiance. Certainly a writer’s and artist’s haven. I wouldn’t say it was in the Deep South, but you could sure see it from there when you looked through the moss-covered trees.
We took a guided trolley tour around the city’s historic district, and learned that a house with a red historic marker meant that the house was at least 75 years old. A black marker meant it was at least 100 years old. Almost every house had a marker of one color or another. It would take a week just to walk around and check out every historic marker in the town. But, here’s the one that fascinated me the most--a street marker showing the location of Whistler’s mother‘s home. We’ve all seen the picture he painted of his mother, now we know where she lived. I thought it was appropriate to see, on Mother’s Day, where a very famous mother lived. :-)

I spent the day with one daughter and got phone calls from my other two children while in Wilmington, so it was a day to be fully aware of my many blessings.
