I walked into Mom & Dad’s place after church on Sunday with an envelope full of cards and e-mails for Mom that had come in over the past couple of weeks. Mom took them to the back room to read, and Dad and I sat down to play cribbage. A few minutes later, Mom walked out with that look on her face. You know the one.
“I’ll get you for that picture you took of me.”
I had included a copy of the “How’s Your Mom” blog piece I wrote last week – that was the first time she had seen the shot I took while she was at the oncologist. It was intended for my brother, but I knew when I used it in the blog that I would pay the price. However, she was willing to allow a replacement . . .
Mom caught me off-guard when I walked in – it was at the end of a very busy day, and when I saw her new hat my first reaction was “I thought you had lost all of your hair.” Silly me . . . the bangs are attached to the hat. Still, I think it looks really nice!
