Just Needed To Post These Pictures


Mom and I spent some lovely hours together a couple weeks before her heart attack. She's so merry, so much fun.

Her merriness, her capacity for fun, has crossed generations.


This is her precious granddaughter, Laura.


Here's her precious granddaughter, Kate - Laura's kid-sis. Their wonderful mom, Jen - is my kid-sis.






As Mother struggles to mend her heart and recover from this danged virus - it just feels good to put these pictures here - a testament to her life, to her capacity for wonder and laughter, to the forward- looking gift she gave to us all.

Hi Cathy,
Those little nieces are so cute. I'm sure they bring a lot of joy to you and your mom.

I hope the virus recovery for your mom is a speedy one, she's had to overcome a lot of hurdles lately and it sounds like she's fortunate to have you looking after her. I'll keep you both in my prayers.

Along with the post of your mom's heart attack (Sept 9) , and subsequent ones with thoughts and images of her, and of home,things of beauty, highschool reunions,grandchildren, family, and barn doors, --- this one too reminds me of what life is really about.

Your mom is surrounded with love that will help her get over that virus. Take care .

Cathy, your photos are always an inspiration. Always enchanting. The bubble ones are so delightful - I can almost hear the squealing and laughter.

Just checking in to let you know you are in my thoughts. How's your mom?
