Happy Birthday, Mom

October 24, 2013 — 1 Comment

I spent most of my lunch looking through “mom pics” that I have on my various computers.

This one jumped out at me this time.


Maybe it’s the penetrating and loving stare.

Maybe it’s the understanding and supportive smile.

Maybe it’s the sense that her right hand seems ready to reach out and grab mine.

Maybe it’s the way she’s sitting such that she could either lean forward to listen closer or even stand up to hug.

For certain it’s that, after this was taken, she said, “I love you.”

There are probably many other things that made this particular “mom pic” jump out this time, I just need to stare longer.

Happy birthday, mom.  I miss you so much.
