Oddly enough I don't have many pictures of my mom, she hates to have her picture taken. For years I didn't really understand why. Now that I am an adult and overweight, I totally understand. It is difficult when you look at a picture of your self and think "oh my word, do I really look like that.
Anyway my mom and I are close, I am probably closer to her than her other two children but, maybe the distance has something to do with that. I know that sounds funny but you try harder when you don't have that constant contact.
Happy Mother's Day Mom, I love you and miss you. I hope that we can spend some time together this summer.
