For Mother’s Day

:note: In Flames – “Jester Script Transfigured”

I was going to write some poignant story about my mother and I for today, but then I searched and searched my computer and photo albums for a photo of us together and discovered that I had none.

This doesn’t mean that there aren’t any in existence, nor does it mean I don’t have any photos of me or my mom, just that I don’t have any of us, together. And it occurred to me that I honestly can’t think of a time in the last three years that I even remember having a photo of us taken together, and it made me sad.

I know my mom doesn’t generally read my site (well, at least I think she doesn’t…) but on the off chance that she does decide to read today: Mom, I just want to say that I love you and next time I’m home I’ll get a picture of us together. Because we need one.

    Aww. I haven’t had a photo together with my mom as well in years. But as long as they know we care and do appreciate them (even if it can be love-hate at times), things are good. =)
