Happy Mother's Day

Back in the mid-1990s my mom first started having problems with her health. I wrote a series of email to our friends detailing the experience that my mom and the rest of the family were going through. This was before my blog.

The emails were sad, poignant, and (you know me) sometimes humorous. Somehow, the Birmingham News got wind of they emails and did an article in their lifestyle section.

I wish I still had the article...actually, I wish I still had the emails. I don't have either, but I do have the photograph the Birmingham News photographer took one day while she was in the hospital.

Happy Mother's Day Mama.
