PhotoHunt: Mom

The greatest gift of all is the gift of life and love . . .

Every now and then . . . even when it is a really cold evening, your mom will bundle you up and take you for a ride on the very cool Merry-Go-Round to make you happy. I took this photo in the small town of Ravenna in Italy. And I love this image with all the moms and their kids, because it is an example of one of the many, many things that make our moms the very special people that they are!

Much love to my own mom who I have to thank for all of the things that she did to make me feel loved and happy.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Mother's Day!

  2. Hi Annie, thanks so much for your comments. Isn't that the coolest little carousel. And it also played this really happy tune too. It was a fun experience to stumble onto while in Italy. Another reason I love independent slow traveling. :) Have a Happy Mother's Day weekend too!

    Hi Marta, thanks for liking my photo and yes moms do such special things that make them the special people that they are. And lucky for us who have our special memories to still reflect upon each Mother's Day is also wonderful.
