These are photos of me and my mom. She passed away last August after a long illness. I love these pictures of us, so I wanted to make a layout with them.

It was the summer season yet it didn't seem to be. The weather was cold and rainy during that August week....the Angels were crying. My mom passed away and the rain came down. The day of her funeral the sun shone and it was a beautiful summer day. But in my heart it was still raining. It seemed I cried enough tears to flood the earth. Then the fall came and the crisp air, I barely noticed the change. Then one day, I walked outside and the ground was covered in snow. It took my breath away...it was so beautiful, so why did I feel so sad? This snow, to me, signified the passing of time. The hot sunny weather was now a snow covered day and my mom was gone. She wouldn't call me to tell me to be careful driving in the snow. I would no longer dial the phone when I walked in the door to tell her I was home safely. And now we are rounding the corner to Spring, and to me the birds do not sing. The flowers are not blooming. My heart still breaks and my eyes are still crying. April showers do not bring May flowers. They bring me one day further from the last time I hugged her. Soon it will be summer and my son will run and play on the beach and I will smile. I will smile as I look up to heaven and thank my dear mother for the life she gave me and the son that I have because of her. And the sun will shine and I will soak up her love in it's rays.
