Robert Petersen, Shannon, and Mother in her backyard.
Mother's pose tells so much about her. In-law children were included in her circle of care and love. Grandchildren were at her side curious about what she was doing. She stayed in her Sunday dress for the entire day, with an apron worn as she cooked Sunday dinner, washing dishes afterward. The camera..........her own need to record the family doings to add to the years of history she had previously kept when she was able to stop time and that we can view anytime at our own desire. And that smile..........and the touch of her hand.
We are privileged to honor her this Mother's Day 2014. We are forever grateful!
