In honor of Mother’s Day I wanted to share this beautiful photograph of my mom. It was taken by my dad in a Massachusetts field of wildflowers in the summer of 1976. She was 24 years old and holding on to mine and my younger sister’s balloons as we gathered up unruly bouquets.
When I think of my mom, I think of her gentle soul, her natural beauty, and her seemingly endless reserves of quiet strength, how she dedicated her younger years so completely to raising my sisters and I, how she later dedicated herself so completely to caring for my dad as he was leaving this earth, how glad I am that she’s been able to find new life and love, and how blessed I am to have this wonderful woman in my life.
I love you mom. Happy Mother’s Day.
A pretty song for a pretty lady :)
Happy Mother's Day to all you gorgeous earth mamas!
