It’s Mother’s Day. This day, in particular, is one of the toughest for me. It’s a definite stark reminder of what I’ve lost and what I should have not taken for granted for so long. You never know how long your loved ones will be with you. So take the time and enjoy them. Make a phone call and tell them how much you value and appreciate them.
One of my proudest moments. My mother had come back a long way from her stroke. She was trying hard to get to a point where could walk without a cane. I had suggested going to Clifton Gorge to do some photography. She was hesitant to go with me due to all the steps and walking but as we discussed it more and more – I think she was liking the challenge.
Off we went and she took my arm on the steep uphill steps. But she made it. Three mile hike and walk with a constant running water stream following us which lead to this photo above. On the way home, we stopped off at Taco Bell. While eating lunch, she kept talking about how proud she was of this. I agreed. It’s still one of my fondest memories. Mom – you definitely made it. All three miles walking without your cane and you conquered each hill and step and you did it. You made it. I miss you and I miss our talks.
Love you Mom!
