My mother today: pointing the way, helpful, warm, feisty, generous, well-dressed (don’t leave home without your earrings!), funny, chatty, engaged, optimistic, and with a long-term memory that makes me envious…
This photo was taken the weekend we celebrated her 85th birthday en famille. It’s a new favorite of mine. And my photo-heart connection for May. (With Kat Sloma.)

Such a fabulous shot! A wonderful tribute to your mom and a great photo-heart connection
It is amazing what this photo expresses, without seeing any of her face! I’m glad you got to spend this wonderful milestone with your mother. It sounds like she will be around for many more. Thanks for sharing in the Photo-Heart Connection this month!
Fabulous photo….tells a story instantly, the one you shared and/or the one the viewer creates. Hope that long-term memory is genetic, and there’s no shortage of short term memory either.
How kind of you to say, Toad. That’s what I like about it too. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment.
