Here is my contribution to Kelli's Show and Tell Friday. My mother died on August 12, 2005, and shortly afterward my former principal, Bobbye Estes, sent me this little plaque. Bobbye's husband died about a week after Mother. This was a very thoughtful thing for her to do, and I keep it in a bookcase where I can see it all the time. The quote is "A Mother's Love is Forever". I can't remember which blog I read it on, but recently someone said that it didn't matter how you and your parents got along, because when they were gone you still missed them. Mother and I didn't get along well at any point in our lives, but I do miss her.
I was trying for the flags at sunset. It was a beautiful night as we journeyed down to my hometown, Stephenville, Texas, with Jim and Louise to see the last of the free summer concerts put on by TexStar Ford, Ricky Skaggs and the Whites. They are coming out with a new album, and the movie below is a little preview of one of the song.
