For Mom….a vital piece of family history….giver of the greatest love…

As a kid I had an unusual curiosity & early appreciation for my family history and where I came from, spending hours upon hours studying our many family photo albums.  I was enchanted with the way my parents looked at each other the first day they brought me home from the hospital, the way my Mom would laugh when I would run into her arms for a hug, the way my brother and I would snuggle up on Mom when she was reading us a bedtime story, and the patience & love in Mom’s eyes as she donned a cowboy hat against a hot pink background when all I wanted for my birthday was a “Glamour Shots Photo Shoot” (seriously, where was Classic Kids when I was a kid?!?)….

This photo was, and still is, a vital piece art in our family home, blown up to poster size and predominantly displayed in our house since 1986. I have looked at this every day in the hallway outside my bedroom and it will NEVER feel dated or old, through this photo I can feel the love and warmth of my mom, and the joy I felt in her arms. It is truly a treasure, and something I will be passing down to my grandkids one day.

I am forever grateful to MY inspiring and beautiful Mom who is perfectly imperfect!  She is an amazing woman, wife, mother, and now Grandma who may think she sees wrinkles when she smiles, but the only thing I see is the loving sparkle in her eyes and all the years she has laughed and smiled with my brother and me. 

MY MOM WAS IN OUR PICTURES! 

(and my Dad made sure of it…way to go Dad!)

 …And a BIG CONGRATS to the newest mom in our family!  My nephew will never have to wonder how deep his mother’s love runs…he will have an endless picture book of her love over the years…he will see it in her eyes and the way she looks at him, he will see it in the way she loves to hold him and comfort him, he will see it in her smile that explodes with joy because he is hers.
