When I was perusing photos for this post, I realized how few great photos I have of me and my mom together. I chose, instead, a photo from one of my favorite childhood books. When I see my parents next, in June for my little sister's wedding, I fully intend to remedy the situation. My mama is incredibly camera-shy, which is part of the reason for the lack of photos, but I will force her pose even if means bribing her with the promise of a shoulder massage.
Almost everyone out there will say the same thing, but my mom is one of the most special people in the world. If you are lucky enough to live close enough, be sure to give your mama a big hug.
