Corner View- where has the time gone?

Corner View ~ where has the time gone?

Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. I started via one of my favorite blogs, FuoriBorgo

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised in a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

(Adele, Someone Like You)

This is Mom. Taken on 4/19/10. That weekend we thought the breast cancer was gone. Her hair was growing back. Her color and energy improving. She was happy. We were happy. It was a summery April day so we celebrated at the zoo in Nashville. It was the first time she had ever been strong enough to carry Eliana in the wrap. I treasure this photo. All the love and tenderness and hope. I imagine her like that now in Heaven. We found out days after this photo that it was back and spread. She started her battle just days before I gave birth, 24 Feb 09, and finished it on Eliana's 2nd birthday morning. This verse brought this image flooding back. So I honor Mom with this my first participation in Corner View.

And this is us in June 08, my first visit in from our station At Minot AFB, North Dakota, pregnant with her first grandchild.


  1. Thank you for joining Corner View, and for sharing your story and this moving tribute to you mom.

  2. hello star.
    i agree, this is moving.

  3. you definitely are a star (excuse the pun) for posting this. mums and dads slipping away from our lives is such a difficult thing to accept, even though we all know it will happen one day.

    that song francesca mentions and you quote... I just went to listen to it as I had never really paid much attention to it... thanks :)

  4. Thank you Francesca. I am so happy to be a part of such a great project! I thought the song quote was part of the subject. Sorry for borrowing it!

    Woolf. Thank you as well.

    La Ninja you are to kind. I have actually never even heard Adele, that quote just moved me. I need to listen. Thank you.
