My mom sent me an 8.5x11 copy of this photograph in the mail a couple of weeks ago. This is she and I in the '80's when we were living on Guam. I love this photo.
The other day I asked Steven to shoot out the first three words he could think of to describe Kjel (sweet, needy (in a good way), resilient). Then I described Gage (determined, communicative, aware). That conversation has been on my mind and my brain has been randomly choosing people I know and firing out adjectives. It's kind of fun!
When I thought of my mom, this picture immediately came to mind. I feel like it really embodies the first three words (of many) that I would use to describe her: searching, supportive, youthful.
