On Mother’s Day of 2012, I had my husband take a photo of the kids and me together. It was that photo, along with the recent passing of my Mom, that sparked my journey to a healthier life.
Now the photos are a tradition, one that I look forward to every year. I never miss an opportunity to get in photos with my children any more.
Not only am I changing, but my kids are, too! I can’t believe how grown up they look…especially my son!
I had a great Mother’s Day. We spent our first weekend at our seasonal camping spot. I got to open my gifts from the kids on the deck with a view of the lake. Warm air and sunshine were plenty. I was definitely feeling the love. We had dinner with my mother in law, brother in law, sister in law, her mother and my brother. Lots of fun and laughs were had.
Mother’s Day is a hard one for me still. This was the third one since my Mom passed.
This is one of my favorite photos of my Mom. She loved riding her motorcycle. We had beautiful weather yesterday and I know she would have been out riding if she were still here. I miss her tremendously.
