Her legacy
Things my mother taught me by: Christy C Shields Baker  

Willie Eloise Shields, my mother taught me so much about the little things in life. How the little things make such a big difference in how I veiw the world today. She taught me to listen to my heart and not my mind.
When we listen to our hearts and dicisions have to be made, bearing the stresses of life become much lighter. She taught me that Patients being a great virtue creates peace of mind. And that the rewards of a giving Spirit can brings about much joy. 
What I will cherish the most is that my mother taught me to have compassion for others. To see that sometimes your own needs aren't as important as helping others.
I hope and pray that I am as good at passing such meaningful attributes on to the people that are in my life. My dear Mother had a heart of Gold and that's what I will hold on to for the rest of my life.

I Remember When! Christy Charlotte Shields Baker (Child #5, Daughter #4)  

         When I was about four years old, my mother made my sister Anna Ruth and I a doll house. It was a two story house made of card board. It was sectioned off with bedrooms, a kitchen, livingroom and dinningroom. I don't think it had a bath room. But it was great.
Mom Ma helped us make funiture from empty spools from thread and card board. A dinning room table with chairs. A couch, chairs and tables for the livingroom. We made table cloths and curtains with scraps of fabric that our grandmother had left over from her quilts.
We had little people that lived in our house.
I will never forget the look of saticfaction on my mothers face. The look of "I did a good job" even if I say so myself. Best of all was the pride we took in saying to others " Look what my mother did for me".
This is just one of many, many treasures of what " I Remember When".
