Happy Mother's Day
This is one of my favorite pictures with my mother. I'm about six months old and it's the winter of 1951. We are in the backyard of the house where my grandparents lived. I posted it on facebook, too, and got to share it with my first cousins. The house was familiar to me, but being much younger than I am they had never seen the house where their father and my mother grew up. It's lovely to share family memories.
An equally lovely treat was a long chat with dear K. We gabbed on and on and shared our healthy eating tips and eye glass buying disaster stories. That's the beauty of friendship...a simple chat is so pleasurable.
Thank you all for your thoughts on my last post. I am so appreciative of your support and your wisdom. I feel tremendous gratitude for the thoughtfulness and kindness that you are offered. It's been difficult to shake off the many emotions that have been going through my mind, but I felt much more able to think of the present and future as the week has gone on.
Wishing you all a blessed and happy Mother's Day.
