Photo Hunt: Important

Birthdays are a rich tradition in my family. Today is the important birthday of an important person in my life... my mother. I love this picture of Mom, Dad and I washing dishes at my Grandma Woolum's house in Spokane. Seeing the details in this kitchen with my mom close beside me brings me comfort. This was a photo taken of Silver Valley Girl and Mom at Christmas the year she was born. I love the way Mom's joy and love for SVG radiates in her face. Mom is enjoying turkey with Raymond Pert at his first Thanksgiving and this was taken as she departed from my house after a wonderful Thanksgiving week-end this year. She is a vibrant woman that continues in her seventies to do the things she loves: gardening, crosswords, traveling, spending time with family, cooking and baking. Her reassuring voice has always been at the other end of the phone or next to me as I have made my challenging journey through life.

Happy Birthday Mom!

    What a beautiful series of pictures. Family is so important. I hope your mother has a marvelous birthday.

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog. (And for the compliment. I think the perfection of that picture is largely due to the perfection of the subject matter, but I may be biased.)

  13. A happy belated birthday to your mom -- and the "morning stove" (at least that's what my Nanny called it) in the very first picture looks suspiciously like the one my grandparents had!! Did the front swing open to clean it out or put in wood? I remember Nanny sitting beside the stove on a step stool warming herself with her tea in the morning. Good memories!
