On a lighter note...

I just finished the journaling for this layout I made last weekend. I wrote:

Sadly, I don't know much about this picture. I think I was 2 or 3. That would make my mom about 23 or 24. I think we were in Kansas at my dad's relatives farm, but I'm not sure why I think that other than the fact we were sitting on bales of hay! Maybe we were on our way to California from Florida? So many unknowns :(

What I do know for sure is that I love everything about it! The colors, mom's hair, the scarves, her over sized flannel shirt & green corduroy capris, the walking stick & hay, my red sweater & the ruffles on my dress & socks, my shoes, her sandals. Like I said, all of it! Because it all speaks to me and reminds me of my mother's love and our bond. It has always been there and always will be, though I miss her terribly still, and always will.

And just in case you are needing some encouragement today:
