Mothers Day 2010 - Scrap Attack Scrapbooking
This layout was supposed to be posted next week. And the post was supposed to be about scrapbooking. But I'm posting it now, and it's not about the layout. It's about the photo, and the people in it, and taking photos, and insisting even when they don't want you to.
My in-laws are not young. I know there's a good chance my kids won't remember them when they are older. A couple of years ago I started insisting on taking photos on Mothers Day and Fathers Day (because I had an 'excuse'). A photo of Mother and Son (and also one of me and my kids) on Mothers Day. A photo of Father and Son (and that son with his own kids) on Fathers Day. Mother-in-law (almost as camera shy as I am) wasn't keen on it, but she played along.
More than 20 years ago, my Mother-in-law won her first battle with breast cancer. Today, breast cancer won round two.
I'm glad I insisted on this taking this photo.
