MOTHER AND DAUGHTER

My Mom says.. "The best path through life is the highway"...

My Mom says.. “The best path through life is the highway”…

Where have the years gone to, they have slipped by so quickly. I notice her frailty and remember how cautiously she watched over all of us. We are having fun today and making wonderful Mother and daughter memories..I have talked her into a photo shoot of sorts and have to warn her to pay attention to the uneven ground. It seems ironic that I now watch over her with caution. I slip my fingers into her warm,worn familiar hand and I am reassured by the comfort it gives me.

My Mom says...."Even though you are on the right track - you will get run over if you just sit there"....

My Mom says….”Even though you are on the right track – you will get run over if you just sit there”….


This shot was hilarious and the whole town came out to play.. Mom just sat there .. I assured her the train had just gone by five minutes before…..

My Mom says.. "As I look down the highway of life.. I have no regrets"...

My Mom says.. “As I look down the highway of life.. I have no regrets”…

Reflections from my Mom..."I was born country and I'll die country"...

Reflections from my Mom…”I was born country and I’ll die country”…

I'm a little bit country ...

I’m a little bit country …

Mom has always been a country girl.. this is her singing her heart out at 17!..

I can only hope that I will look down the highway of my life and feel the same as my Mom does today… I’m reminded again that moments like these add up to a lifetime of love….
