When cleaning out one of my many closets that need attention, I ran across this photo of me and my dear, loving mom.
I love this photo for so many reasons.
It was taken on my grandma’s porch, and I also know that the doll belonged to her. She would keep the doll on a bed in one of her bedrooms. The doll’s name was Nancy.
Wish I could ask the person who took the photo if they meant to include my mom, since she appears so far off to the side. I am so happy, one way or another, that they did, she looks so beautiful, and she is smiling, probably trying to get me to look at the camera. Love her flowered dress, the type I remember her wearing so often, such a sweet print, wish I could remember the color.
Love the old mail box by the door, the flower pots and plants, watered and cared for by my grandma, I’m sure. Do you all remember those metal porch chairs?
Oh my gosh, I love my little shoes, tied with perfect bows by my mom, and the little sundress I am wearing.
And on this Mother’s Day I wish I could be that little girl for just 5 minutes to tell my momma, “love you”, and to hold and hug her as tight as I could.
Thank God for all the photos I have, and love so much, of all those I love who are with me and those in heaven.
Blessings and love on this Mother’s Day.
