In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
Here is another needlepoint decoration made by my mom. Today is her birthday and she would have been 79 years old. I've been thinking about mom a lot today, so it seems right to use another of her creations for my photo today. She especially enjoyed Christamas and I have many happy memories of her joy when giving us gifts, great meals, and love.
