And they sung a new song, saying thou art worthy to take the book..
I couldn't let the night go by
Without saying thank you
How quickly the years fly.
Happy birthday, 102.
You are an inspiration
Mother, and I love you.
I shot this picture during the program in the afternoon...some of the angles
were not too easy in this small church and I got up on the platform in front of the congregation to shoot this portrait. I tried to be as inconspicuous as I could and hopefully without too much distraction....I love my mother's beautiful hands and
the nice manicures they are giving her at the Nursing Home.
I am so thankful that she can still play the piano and that memory has not left
her when so many of her other memories have gone. I called her tonight to wish
her a happy birthday and she was wondering if her parents were still living...
But this is part of her dementia and as hard as it is to hear her talk this way, I
have learned to accept it...and to appreciate her for who she is and was.
