It was a moment from The Hounds and the Baskervilles Thursday morning.
Just BE happy!

Okay, yesterday would have been my mother's birthday. It was a day of great reflection for me.
"Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart." - Haruki Murakami
Pictured here is my youngest son sitting with my mother. Sometimes I wish I could turn back the hands of time and change the way we were when I was little. We struggled horribly, both us of were quite relentless too. But a delightful thing happened once I became a mother. She became the perfect grandmother for all my children, and they loved her dearly. So through all the years that followed until I read her one last story, and she slipped away, we had a perfect relationship just like mothers and daughters should.
You can't get those moments back, but the memories of them live on forever.
If you don't have a special place, find one quickly. Then thank yourself that you did.
"The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It's the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared." Lois Lowry, The Giver
