Mamma Mia

My Camera Shy Mother

My Camera Shy Mother

Since my own (camera shy) mother is gone, I always feel a pang or two as the rest of the world goes right on celebrating Mothers Day. But why not, I tell myself – it’s important to celebrate with Mom while you still can, and I still get to think of my own with thanks. So, all you fathers (or S.O.s) and kids, time to work on that breakfast in bed menu – those eggs don’t just scramble themselves!

OR, take Mom out to eat at one of the restaurants below.
