Earth Wonders Challenge-BRIGHT and Bunny Hop Wednesday

Hi Everyone!  Hope you're having a great day/evening.

I've been gone for a few weeks, if you hadn't noticed.  The first week was due to health reasons. 

These last two weeks were because my Mom passed away on Halloween morning. 

Mom's 20th High School Class Reunion and how
I believe she appears in Heaven!
It's hit me harder than I thought it would.  I guess you're never really ready for it to happen.  She was 83 and was in poor health for the past decade or so.  She and Dad were in the same nursing home when she passed, and he keeps blaming himself for "not taking good enough care of her," which isn't true!  If you would, please keep him in your prayers.

Scrapbook page my sister made for Mom and Dad
The only thing that has made this bearable is knowing Mom is in Heaven with Jesus!  I don't know how anyone can make it through losing a parent (or anyone, for that matter) and not know whether or not they were saved.  I'm sure there has been a "grand" reunion with all Mom's family welcoming her home! ("Grand" was one of her favorite expressions.)

Ana's Earth Wonders Challenge this week is - BRIGHT.  This photo is one I took on our way home from Seattle last year.  I know, you're probably getting tired of all the Seattle trip pictures! LOL!  I don't get out much!

Anyway, the sun was coming up as we got closer to the Iowa - Illinois state lines.  I cropped the original, but the brilliance of the sun is all its own! No further enhancement was required.

Ana has set up a Flickr group to post our photos to, also! Take a gander!

Also sharing with Bunny Jean's Bunny Hop Wednesday.
