Welcome to the Thursday’s Children Blog Hop, where writers come together to share whatever inspires them throughout their writing journey. Make sure to check out the other bloggers via the Link List at the bottom of this post. We’d love for you to join us!
I'm on vacation, so this I've kept this post short and sweet. Yep, I escaped cold and snowy New York to visit my mom in sunny Florida. I hadn't been to her house in 2 or 3 years, so I wandered around enjoying the many photos that adorned her walls.
Then one brought a tear to my eye. It's a picture of my mother and her brother from the 50's, they were both teenagers. They spent most of their adult lives on opposite coasts, and we lost him to tragic circumstances in 2009.
This is the picture.
I had forgotten that I framed it for her and wrote this short and sweet poem:
So many yesterdays forgotten,
And many miles apart.
You may not have been in my arms,
But you were always in my heart.
I think this is a reminder.
Don't think about calling a loved one. Do it!
Don't say "we should get together." Do it!
