Of course you, and Cathy too, are talking about your Mom - you will do that forever and that is good, Mom lives on in both of you! It has been a long time since my Mom died and I still talk about her and to her. I bet your Mom is smiling that you have Gerry in your living room window - that is cute! With my stepmom living in another state I'd send her pictures of her Great Grands all the time - a couple weeks ago I took a photo of our Grands thinking I'd send it to "Mom", of course I couldn't so I emailed it to my stepsister and told her why she was getting it
I really am happy for you that you are going back to you happy place - you deserve that, you need that and you have to know that your Mom is glad you are there too taking those beautiful photographs and hiking.

On the days we had someone to stay with her and we would go out, I'd take my camera with me. When we'd get home and I was downloading the pictures mum would ask how many I took that day. Depending on how many it was, I'd get an "oh, Cindy! Why so many?" So now when I do that, I still tell her how many.
At my nephews birthday, I took 65. Most of those are before my sister and family arrived. My brother was already there and had grabbed our table, so he was off fishing. I can see mum shaking her head at me!
