I am not liking holidays anymore. Yesterday was just too painful for me as I was missing my Mom terribly! I was seeing messages and photos of Moms everywhere. I am having trouble with my scanner, so can't even post a decent photo of myself with my Mom.
I do love this one:
This is Mom's last Christmas. She was 94. She looked so pretty. We are practically holding her up.
I like how the star on the tree ended up above her head!
I also have this one:
I look fat! (I was overweight), but Mom and I in happier days at the health care center.
I don't have pictures of us when I was a child. We didn't have a camera. We couldn't afford professional portraits. I have some pictures of us when I was a baby, and then on my wedding day, but I can't get my scanner to work properly!
Such a comfort!
My husband doesn't do Mother's Day. (I'm not his mother). No flowers, no card, nothing from him.
He has to work out of town this week and left yesterday at 1pm. He said we would take me out next weekend and gave me a big kiss. I know he didn't like to leave me when I was feeling so sad.
My son did give me a card. He also decided that I should get this necklace so we ordered it. He said it is "me." We got it with a "MOM" charm. I was determined not to cook on Mother's day so Jim left some money, but then Dan paid for our dinner. We then went to my bff's house and had a nice visit with her and her husband.
