I thought the New Year was starting off just fine, then life threw a whammy! My in-laws had health issues that required spending the end of January, February and March in my hometown to care for them.
Then on March 3rd my dear, sweet Mother passed away after her 20-year battle with cancer. Needless to say, there hasn’t been time for photo shoots or time to update this blog, but I did want to post a photo of Mom that I took last Mother’s Day. Her hair had started to grow back and she was enjoying sitting on her swing poolside. Unfortunately, later that summer she went back on chemo as the cancer had spread to her lungs. Believe me she was a “hair” person and it took everything I could do to get her to let me photograph her. She was my biggest fan, though, and I think she knew why I was so bent on taking her picture whenever I could. Miss you, Mom, but know you’re in a better place….
