I snuck this photo of my Mom, Phyllis Crawford, when visiting Northern Virginia in May 2007. My sister was getting her Master’s Degree and many of us were visiting. I love the light in this photo. And I miss Mom. She would have been 72 today had she not died of cancer in 2010. May 8th is sometimes, but not always, Mother’s Day. Always a special day regardless of how bittersweet it is.
