Celebrating Mothers - "this moment" Begins

My friend Sarah - Geek+Nerd - has inspired me to begin occasionally posting an image taken of a moment in my life - a moment that requires no words or explainantion. A moment to "pause, savor, and remember".

Read about what inspired her and see her first "this moment" here. And don't miss this precious moment!

So, with this image taken long, long ago, I am closing this series celebrating mothers and beginning a new series - "this moment".

 

Celebrating Mothers Part 4 - My Mom and the War of Two Worlds

My Mother made this painting of Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon  following a back pack trip we shared when she was in her mid-50's.  It took me nearly 20 years to talk her into giving it to me!

Celebrating Mothers Part 3 - "Mom Treasures"

Ok!  So I am a MOM!  And that entitles me to share a few of my "Mom Treasures" - handmade gifts from my own children, Diane and Michael!

Diane took photography in high school. This one is one of my favorites - her instructor gave this image 10 out of 10 for both composition and print making. I love the feeling of depth and mystery.

Celebrating Mothers part 2 - Treasures from Grammie

My Great Grandmother Grammie had a huge impact on the person I am today.  She taught me to sew, cook, bake, embroider and garden.

I grew up on a lovely property that had room for an orchard full of cherry, apricot and apple trees and a huge garden where Grammie grew strawberries, raspberries, beans, peas, tomatoes, grapes, rubarb and many other good things that have faded from memory.  The property was large enough that she had her own cottage and so she could be a part of our lives every single day.

There are more memories than I can count attached to every one of the pieces in the photo.

Mother's Day - Sharing Treasures and Memories

I am starting a little mini series today in honor of Mother's Day and the women - daughter, mother, grandmother and great grandmother - who have made me the person I am today.  Little bits and pieces of each of them that bring back treasured memories.

Diane gave me the idea several months ago when she told me I just HAD to share pictures of my Grandmother Gwen's Fiesta skirt that had just arrived in the mail from my Mother.
