Mother's Day and such
For those of us who no longer have their Mom's with us, Mother's Day can be difficult. There's not a day goes by when I don't think about my Mom, Sylvia Wulkan, who was truly my best friend and always my champion. She was there for me in times of joy and troubles; even when she disagreed or disapproved of my decisions, our love and respect for each other never got lost in the mix. She was a unique individual with a huge loving heart and is missed by many.
I have many photos of her but none are digital, and I need to work on that so I can add her beautiful face to this post - but for those family and friends who knew my Mom, I know she is not forgotten.
I hope everyone reading this takes a moment to remember their Mom - and appreciate the love and care we receive from our mothers. They shape us and make us who we are, more than we realize and whether we like it or not!
So, my son just called to wish me happy Mother's Day and my newest 'child' Bubba, is sleeping at my feet. He is such a good dog (most of the time) and I'm so glad to have him at this point in my life.
I was really surprised that I could capture his face but I'm happy with the result, considering I've only been drawing for a month.
Off to meet a friend for coffee and desert - our Mother's Day treat to ourselves. Enjoy your day too!
