Leif and Bambi

My mom. Mother of three daughters. Three daughters who learned to walk on this road. Who learned to ride bikes on this road. Who adventured, and discovered, and imagined on this road throughout the whole of their childhood.

Now mom is 'Bambi.' She walks with her three grandsons on this road. Watches them learn to ride bikes on this road. A road most magical at sunset. If life is ideal nowhere else in this world, it still is in this moment.

I spent a lot of time laboring over my submission choice for the Mother's Day photo contest at Soliloquy. Do I choose a new photo? An old one? The prettiest? The funniest? A memorable occasion? A special person? In the end, I had to go with a photo that I took of a moment, a person, a babydoll, and a place~ each deeply special to me.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom.
Thanks for the ideal childhood.

Perfect! What a sweet moment you captured!

Oh how I wish my mom was able to have a daily relationship with my children. But she lives in Florida... and in turn we have a great place to visit. : )
