Sharing my Mom - Frances Redd

->> I woke up this morning at 3:00 and just had an urge to share with everyone my Mom. When we found out Mom was dying all the children moved back home. The photographs that are in my gallery this week our a snapshot of our last five weeks with Mom.

If you have parents, call them, go by and see them, tell them you love them. That is all they want to know, that we as their children love them.

I know my Mom is watching over me and is at every sporting event I go shoot. I feel her presence but it does not stop me from wanting to kiss and hug her physically just one more time.

I experienced the same thing with my dad in 1996. I gained a new respect/fear of the disease. I also realized that you cannot over-estimate the value of the time you spend with loved ones until they are gone.
