It's Sunday May 8, 2011. Only Luke (the photographer, 16 yrs) and Z'Anne (Mom) are home in Sherwood Park. Brad and Ethan are in Ontario for a very special 90th birthday celebration with Brad's paternal grandmother Hulda Jansen.
In 2010, I spent my first Mother's Day away from my 2 dear sons. I was flying home from an early 20th wedding anniversary trip to Paris on Sunday May 9th, and our flight was delayed due to ash in the atmosphere from an Icelandic volcano eruption. When we got home in the wee hours of Monday May 10th this Mother's Day surprise of flowers, chocolate and a card was in place by Luke (15 yrs) and Ethan (11 yrs)
2009 Mother's Day was an extra precious one. My own Mom (Karen Ann Harvey, Luke & Ethan's Grandma) had battled back from a reoccurrence of her breast cancer and was back home from 2 months in the hospital. From left to right: Luke (14 yrs), Z'Anne, Karen Ann (65 yrs) and Ethan (10 yrs). We laughed and seized the day together and I am sure glad Brad took this picture to remind us of this day. She died June 11, 2009 at home as she had wanted.
