About a million years ago (well maybe only 24) I was a young mom who loved her time with her boys. Now I am an “old” mom who still loves time with her boys and their “girls”.
I found this newspaper clipping a few weeks back and it made me smile pretty big. Yes, that is me with our youngest son, Aaron, who was 7 at the time. We were attending a special night at his elementary school where author Sheila Kelly Welch was sharing a bit with PTO members and students. As the author of a fun book, A Horse For All Seasons, Sheila Kelly Welch shared a few stories and entertained the crowd.
While I don’t remember a lot of what the author said that night I do remember this precious moment with Aaron feeding me popcorn. The local newspaper photographer caught the moment for posterity. Honestly it makes me a little misty eyed to see my sweet Aaron at that age. With his wedding coming up in September it doesn’t take much to make me tear up.
I checked my bookshelves and found the book I bought that night. I have a bookcase that has a couple of shelves devoted to signed books and this one was there so many moves and so many years later.
I checked out Amazon and found that there are a few copies of this cute book floating around out there. If you are interested in a sweet collection of horse stories for younger readers this might be of interest to you. You can check it out by clicking here.
Do you have a picture that you have seen lately that evokes a thousand words like this one did for me? I would love to read all about it in the comments. Don’t forget to Comment for a Cause for PAWS during this month.
