Wishful Wednesday

Years ago
my mom was a beautiful, radiant, happy bride.

I never really knew her like this.
Happy, that is.

I spent my early years trying to bring happiness to her
through what I accomplished.
Then I tried to share my life and my kids
with her in order to brighten up her world.
Recently, I confess that I've just been mad that
she's so unhappy
and that I allowed her unhappiness to
control so much of my life.

Today, as I look at these photos,
I just want to
wish her happiness.

Yup, that's my WISH for this Wednesday ~
That my mom finds a little bit of happiness.
That some of these smiles
will find their way to her face


  1. This is powerful and sad. We allow the unhappiness of those we love control our happiness. I know.

  2. sad and beautiful....this is all you can do!!

  3. Oh Adrienne, this is really big stuff. I am so glad that you are at a point in your life where maybe the burden has lifted a little. Take care!

  4. That breaks my heart girlie! The power of prayer is amazing, just be there for her while you can be. <3
