A Heavenly Happy Birthday to my Mom

Today my mother would have been 91 -- she has been in heaven for 6 years. I still miss her, and so many things on a regular basis make me think of her. The only good part is that I know that she is now in a better place.

I have always loved this picture of my Mom taken when she was about 4 years old (that would have been 1922). As you can see in the second picture, it was in a real state of disrepair so I decided to have it restored. While it was not an inexpensive fix, I gladly paid the price as it brings me great joy and I have it displayed on a wall with real wedding pictures of members of my family. She told me that she had no idea why she and this little boy who was just a neighbor dressed up like a bride and groom. They sure didn't look very happy about it!

What a special photo for you. The restored photo is beautiful...very sharp and clear. You're right...it's worth whatever the price was.

Happy Birthday to your "Heavenly Mom"
