This was first published on Are We Nearly There Yet, my other blog, in April.
Once again http://www.stickyfingers1.blogspot.com/ has gone and done it again. This weeks Gallery subject is the 7 deadly sins. The sins are: Wrath, Greed, Sloth, Pride, Lust, Envy, Gluttony.
Why she couldn't just have the subject as 'dog', 'child' or 'holiday snap' I don't know.
So, I spent FOREVER going through pictures only to find pictures of my children, our wedding and/or our dog which I decided were boring.
So I slept on it and the following morning dug these out and found some pictures I am very proud of.
Three pictures of a mother and child. My mother. I am the child. I only had my Mum for nine years. I have difficulty with memories during those years.
Luckily I have photos, quite a few in fact. I don't just look at the photos, I pore over them I wonder what she was thinking, doing, wearing ... just any glimpse of anything that makes me feel a bit closer to her.
Now that I am a mother they mean even more to me.
I think the would have been proud of me, as I am of her.
