Mom and her roses

by mymothersbrain

Some days on this journey I don’t want to look forward. The future is too frightening when I consider how much more difficult this path is going to become. I want only to look back at the better times. Today being the day before Thanksgiving, I am filled with gratitude for the parents I had, especially my mother, and for the opportunities that her illness has presented me in terms of spiritual growth. This photo was taken on her birthday in spring of 2010.
