Mother #1

In honor of (and to healthily cope with)Mother's day week - I'm going to do a post-a-day til Mother's day. I have an entire closet crammed with family photos (7 large totes) and am planning on starting to incorporate them into art of some sort; I want to use them as inspiration rather than a burden on space. I'm starting here.

Teresa Lynn Summers

Jan.31 1949 - June 9 2007

You were a real doll. And you knew it.
I remember you in so many ways
and this is one of my favorites.

I can't imagine how many times
he gave you that look.
Grandpa frozen proudly
in an snapshot.

You came from her exactly.
I come from you
And so many times
this was us.
