Tomorrow is Mother's Day.  

I am blessed to have my mother in my life to laugh, smile, speak, listen, and around. 

I always told myself that I didn't want to be like my mommy but every day I strove to be just like mommy. Everything about her radiates goodness and beauty. Everything she exhibits shows strength and humility. I yearn everyday to have the integrity and character that she possesses.  Her love and light is a beautiful thing to behold. 

I chose this photograph because it comes from a collection taken by my late father Michael Wilborn.  He was a photographer and he taught me everything that I know.  I still own the family Minolta, of which I admire dearly.    My father took beautifully honest portraits of my mother. I could tell that during this time they were in love.  They were happy.  They were living and excited to be alive. 

Though this picture comparison is not perfectly a match, it shows that just like attempting to wear my mother's clothes, makeup, nail polish and shoes I desired to be just like her. Thoughts?
