Project 52: Mothers

What a perfect time to talk about mothers!  Project 52 is a venture I joined to take a picture every week around a particular subject.  I’ve sucked at it really, yet I continue to follow along and post as  I can.  I think life is like that too.  We follow along and do what we can do.

I took my mom to Starboard Market in Clear Lake for lunch the Friday before Mother’s Day.  This is a picture from that day.  Today my mom is in the hospital.  She’s been sick off and on since December.  I won’t take her picture in the hospital.  Mostly because she won’t let me.  It’s an invasion on her privacy and she doesn’t want the world to see her sick.  I don’t blame her about that.

I’m lucky, my mom is my best friend.  She ‘gets’ me.  And for that, I’m blessed.

    Sending a cheer! Shirley, you’re a great gal, and great company. I hope we’ll share a laugh, or fried okra or a play again soon.

    Mom told me that we are flying to Hutchinson this year! I sure hope in fact we can do that.
