My Five Minute Friday on: Cherished
Tomorrow is my Mommom's 90th birthday. We have been quietly scanning and creating something very special for her.
A photo book, celebrating her life.
It's been fun looking back — to days when hair was dark and wrinkles were few. A glimpse back in time when things seemed simpler.
Do you see that little girl with long hair and glasses, arm slung up over and around? There are more pictures just like it. Snuggled in, holding on.
I have always cherished her.
It sounds cliche', but she has always been there. I know I am loved and accepted when I'm around her.
And she has always been so full of life. Very active and outgoing. And fun to be around. My kids have discovered it — her joie de vivre — joy of living. It's contagious and beautiful to be around.
The years are taking their toll and I have been preparing. Stashing away the memories. Storing them up like a squirrel with his acorns.
Cherishing every opportunity to love on her. Happy birthday, Mommom!
Even though I wrote about her recently, when I saw the prompt I felt compelled to share more. Thank you for your grace.
Linking with Lisa-Jo…
