Mom Notes

Some of Mom’s Notes in Her Own Hand

This  Weekly Photo Challenge is “letters.”  I immediately thought of  Mom who died 21 years ago.  I didn’t quite understand why but I could never part with the little card notes she used to attach to gifts.  They were always clever little mini-letters that had special meanings.  Over the years I finally realized the notes were my mother’s messages of love.  Each  refers to some important phase of my life, some special thing I was yearning for, some incident or occasion that must have seemed all important to me at the time.   I do not recall  the phases or the occasions or even what the presents were, but the letters turned out to be the real gifts.

Are you wondering who Dorf is?  

When my new little brother was learning to talk he called me Dorfy instead of Dorothy.  

That morphed into “Dorf” and that has always been my nickname in the family.

Come Closer – Please!

Weekly Photo Challenge:  One

Every good photograph needs a focal point.  It is the thing that draws the viewer’s eye and tells the story. 

This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, show us ONE.

Rosa the Beautiful

Every time I pass by the neighbor’s house, I wave at Rosa.  Sometimes I even stop to roll down the window and say, “Hi” and chat a while.

Rosa is a horse.

She always looks me straight in the eyes and practically begs for company. 

There she is – one lone horse watching the road, waiting.  I can’t resist!

Most times I slow down and wave but sometimes I stop to chat and she listens very carefully.  She always looks me right in the eyes.  We have hardly met up close but there is this strange, unexplainable one to one connection between me and that horse.  It’s as if we have known each other before.

People might say I’m daft to be stopping the car to talk to a horse. 

But there’s this one to one thing going on that always makes me feel happier either coming or going.

I think she waits for me and the visit makes Rosa feel happier too.
