Where I Stand Sunday

DSC_0017I stand in the house of my parents, a half days drive from my house. Although I have never lived in this house, it’s still’s still full of warmth and love.  It’s Mother’s Day and I am glad to be spending it with mom reminiscing about the past and enjoying “just today and every day”…the mom who put up with me throughout the years - all my growing aches, pains and the good stuff, too.  The mom who taught me so much, just by being “my mom” and the great woman she is.  I love you!  Thanks!

Where I Stand Sunday is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places I spend my life standing.
Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on.
The ground we tread on has its own stories to tell.

Pattie, Just stopping by to say "hello". Sounds like you had a wonderful Mother's Day with your mom. I'll be seeing my own mom tomorrow, as we head to her place for a day trip. There is something special, I think, about having my mom still here as I approach 50. I'm old enough to look back and really cherish what I had growing up, and I want to learn as much from her wisdom as I can while she is still here to teach me.

Anyway - blessings to you and yours!

And by the way, I love your store on Etsy - I'm saving up to spend there when I can.
