I was blessed to grow up with a mom I always knew loved me even when we had our differences. She's been gone many years & I miss her dearly. She was very sick at the time my dad took this picture but her attitude was positive & somehow he captured her without the illness showing. I keep this picture on my mantle (& my dad's is next to her). We've had such a warm Spring my roses are blooming in time to have them for Mother's Day. Wishing all of you a happy day.
