The Vivacious Mama

 
This is the last photo I took of the ever vibrant Mama gazing directly at me. This was back in March when the Asian pear tree behind her was beginning to bloom. I discovered the photo this morning when I was looking for something to share at  Friday's Hunt, hosted by Teresa of Eden Hills.

The photo fulfills the prompts for this week: 1) Starts with V  2) Week's Favorite  3) Thankful

I'm thankful that I have a photo of the oh-so-vital Mama. A couple weeks after this photo was taken, her body, as her doctor put it, finally hit the wall. It no longer was able to compensate after her 94 years of living. There's much for me to be thankful when it comes to the Mama. Most of all, I am thankful that the Mama was my mama.

  4. Oh she is as beautiful and kind looking as I always knew she would be from your words.. Perfect V adjectives, and of course you could really use this photo for so many letters as well as V. Happy, courageous, bright, beautiful .....

    Thank you for sharing the love and respect she so rightly deserved.

    1. The Mama would've giggled and said, "Me?" While playing down the compliments, she would've been tickled pick to hear your kind words, Sallie.

  8. what a beautiful mama you had. I bet you have lots of stories from her long lifetime to remember. A friend, who has her mom in an assisted living center due to Alzheimer's told of picking her mom up for Christmas dinner and finding another resident's daughter had purchased personalized gifts for each resident. She said her mom looked so happy and my friend sat with a gentleman who served in WWII and was turning 99 years young. Oh the stories that generation would share with us. I am very glad I always paid good attention. I only wish I could cook like my own mama. But I will never let go of my heritage and all the traditional dishes.I don't like living without my folks, they were so strong and kind and always there to listen to any problem I might have. But I would not wish them back to this life and their tired bodies and the woes in this world today. This photo is such a beautiful tribute to your mama. What a lovely person she must have been.
