I studied everything about it. My mother's perfect hands. Her eyes filled with love. Shelly's little thumb by her mouth. Her eyes closed tightly and her full head of hair.
It made me long for so many things. I thought about how much I miss my mom and how much I wish she were here to see us coming "home". I thought about how much love she had for my girls and how much they loved her. I thought about the innocence of that sweet little girl. The one who will turn 12 in just 9 days. A picture is truly worth a thousand words. I love both of them so much.
