This past Mother’s Day, we were lucky to celebrate with four generations of women: Capri, Me, my Mother and Grandmother. We all share the same long fingers and family history. I realize the light in the center of the picture is from a flashbulb, but I like to think of it as symbolic of our connection.
I won’t buy a card for my Mom unless I feel tears sting the back of my eyes when I read it. When I give her one of those cards, tears spring to her eyes as she reads it.
She looked beautiful holding her Mother’s Day flowers.
The kids love spending time with Grandma and Grandpa. Xayden even had a nightmare when we returned home and sobbed “b’bye Grandma. b’bye Grandpa,” in his sleep. That made me wish even more that we lived closer to them.
Ryder enjoyed a book with Great Grandma.
