About Me

My photo
I am usually typing on a computer most of the day, but today I am trying my hand at a new project: My 2011 365-Day Photo Journey. I gained a love for photography when I was required to take a fine arts class for college--I chose photography. The course required a lot of work--Professor Loehr saw to that--but it opened my eyes to a new world. It's been many years since I took that class and I don't know how much I actually remember, but following Laura Delagal's 365 Photo Journey and watching my niece's love for taking pictures has peeked my interested in photography again. Although I don't have a professional camera, I did receive a really nice Sony digital (point-and-shoot) camera from my sweetie for Christmas this year. Going through some difficult times in my life, I thought that undertaking my own 365-day photo journey might be a way to relieve a little stress and have some fun with my new toy. Through this journey I will capture some of life's joy and its pain, but I will also be able to refocus the lens of my life on the many wonderful things that God has created. Well, here goes. Wish me luck!

Day 18 - 1/18/2011

My Mother
Mother has not been doing well for about a week or so.  Today I took her to see the doctor for a check up and she was admitted to the hospital for test.  Get better soon, mother!  Bridget and I love and miss you!!!


  1. I hope she feels better, Cheryl. I miss seeing that smile on her face. Stay strong.

  2. This picture has great colors! I love the contrast of the green background and the redish tone of your mom's blouse.
