memorial stuff, everyone wanted to use it, so my dream of photography has found some fame in chronicling her beauty and grace--and Joy.
memorialized her well. She always had time for our friends, and welcomed them with love and prayers.
Just this spring we were able to make one last trip to Arizona. She sang with Lincoln on the drive down--even doing actions of the various songs! She admitted to me that one of the toughest parts of teaching this last year was brain gym--moving with the kids--but she remained vibrant with her students.
Our last photo, in front of the olive tree in AZ. She and dad first came here when she was pregnant with me, and we've been back many times. I was blessed beyond belief with my mom--she loved me SO much--she loved being a mom--she loved hearing Lincoln stories--she loved shopping for yarn with me--she loved reading magazines and watching House Hunters and baking--and I will keep that legacy alive.
I love you, mom. Thank you for loving me.
