Mornings with Mom

In a conversation with mom this morning while I was having coffee with her, she asked if I had a fire at my house what would I save.  I didn’t have to think long, the most precious things I have at my house are my pets.  As long as they’re safe I’m good.

Now that I think back on that, I find it pretty remarkable.  Is this an indication of the simplicity of the life I have created for myself?  There are plenty of things in my house that I am fond of and would probably miss but in the event of a catastrophe I would leave them with never a backward glance.

Fortunately, because of my work circumstances, most of my photographic history is there in files, on the computer and on a flash drive which I keep in my purse.  Now because of Facebook there is also a medium for saving photos.  So I think I can put that particular worry to bed.  I might take a little more care to make sure I’ve copied the most recent stuff to my flash drive though.

I love these mornings with mom when we can talk about our plans for the day, world events, what is going on with family members, etc.  I know in the future I will look back on this time as one of the particular treasures of my life.  Life is so short and unpredictable, I have been so blessed to have this time.
