I wish this view were real. Because if it was real,then I could talk to my mom. And tell her how much I love her and what a great mom she was. But, I would have to be that age again too, I guess, so that would not be too cool. I saw yet another "Dear Photo" picture on 365 yesterday and realized I had a perfect opportunity! My mom's house that we are cleaning out and preparing for a yard sale is right down the street from the home we lived in when I wasborn until 2nd grade. I had this picture of Mom with us in the yard one Easter Sunday. I guess I am about 2 here, so this is in 1967. We used to get these inflatable Easter bunnies with different compartments, and holes in the wall of each. There was ball or jingle bell that you could shake into each compartment and then back again. I might have been too little for one this particular year.
Today was "start packing up some of Mom's stuff" day. I was glad to have some company. My SIL, niece and nephew went with me. Before we did any picking and packing, we walked to my childhood home and knocked on the door. Two cars were in the carport, but no one answered. We were already on the drive way and it's a small town...so we took about 5 min. to try to get a decent shot. It's hard when it is so bright you can't see your viewfinder very well.
This one came out pretty good. I really liked that the photo was trimmed in a heart shape....Mom had a heart shaped frame for it. That just sums it all up about how I feel about my mom and how my heart will hurt at times.
I will be keeping my eyes out for other chance to do this type thing! It was a nice walk...just really hot!
