A Mother’s Tale

To the world you might just be one person,
but to one person you might just be the world.

Today is Mother’s Day in the U.S. My mother and father celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary in April, which I think is pretty incredible. While they were visiting me in Utah last week, I took the opportunity to capture their photo in a way that signifies how I see them: separate yet one. And I thought it would be fitting to highlight my mother – literally and figuratively – in honor of this day.

I hope you enjoy this tribute to my mother and a love that has blessed so many in remarkable ways.

Happy Mother’s Day to every mother, everywhere.
