Fun Monday, May 12th - Mother's Day

In honor of Mother's day weekend, the challenge is to either talk about what you did on Mother's Day or to share a picture of you and your mom.  Since I've already put my Sunday all over Facebook, I'm going with the picture of me and Mom.

I really had to wrack my brain to come up with one, honestly.  I could only think of one picture of the two of us.  Most have lots of other people in the picture and she and I are not the point of those pictures.  And usually it's either her or me holding the camera the rest of the time.  When I went searching for the one picture, I did find another. 

This was taken after my first wedding 32 years ago (gasp).  I'm showing her my brand new wedding ring. 

And this one was taken probably less than a minute after:


This is the one picture I always think of when I think of one of Mom and me.  All those years ago, even though I didn't know it at the time, she was saying goodbye to her baby girl and hello to her daughter, the woman.  Holding tight before letting go. 

I hope I am as graceful about it when it's time to let go of MY baby.
