Elaine of ‘I used to be indecisive’ blog, has nominated me to do the ‘5 Photos, 5 Stories’ challenge. Here’s my first photo, with the story behind it.
My mom and sister are in South Africa, and today sister went to visit mom for Mothers’ Day. She sent me this photo of mom with the flowers from me and a delicious chocolate cake, for which my sister is famous.
I set my alarm for 5am so that I could phone mom before she had lunch and went for her afternoon nap. She could hardly talk as her voice is very weak, but I was able to wish her a happy Mothers’ Day, and tell her how much I love her. Those of you who follow my blog will know that it’s mom’s 90th birthday on 26th of this month, and that I’m keeping my fingers crossed that our Green Cards will arrive in time for us to travel over to be there for the celebration.
Wishing all you Moms a very happy day today.
The challenge is quite simply to “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. My nomination today is Lisa of Northwest Frame of Mind blog, who always has interesting images to share. Of course, there’s no obligation to join in. It’s entirely up to you.
