Catch a Smile ~ Thursday Challenge.

"Catch a Smile" ~ Thursday Challenge.

This picture of my mother was taken last Fall.
I haven't seen her in more than three months,
since I started a new job,
but have plans to be with her again in two weeks.
The challenge for today reminded me of a very old song with the line,
"Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket, save it for a rainy day."
(A BIG thanks to everyone for the kind attention given to yesterday's post.)

My sister and her 3 grandchildren.
