A Mother’s Love

New Orleans, Louisiana © LISA S CLARK 2022

I just enjoyed an hourlong phone call with my mom. She’s at that age when you realize that each conversation could be your last.

We’ve had a lot of adventures and fun together over the years, and I will always cherish those memories. This is a souvenir photo from a riverboat trip we took when we visited New Orleans in March 1990. We were celebrating my 23rd birthday.

During our call today, I was talking about my life with my husband, the home we’ve created, and how I am managing my MS. She suddenly became emotional and said, “I’m really proud of you, Lisa … everything you’ve done.” 

Well, that beam of sunshine just filled my whole heart and spirit. There’s just nothing like a Mother’s Love.
