A Mother's Hug

Here's my word theme post for the day. This is a little pillow I have sitting on an antique rocking chair in my living room. I love this quote.
And yikes! Here's my try at a self-portait. I'm much more suited to be behind the camera than in front of it!

Awwwww. . . love the phrase on that pillow! And good self-portrait; I set a goal for myself to be in more pics whether I "like the way I look" or not, so I'm hoping to be doing some of the same soon! :)

Nice quote and nice self portrait! I noticed that you have a new avatar...is it this photo flipped or another from your self portrait session?
