When my mum told me by phone she had a cancer, I was devastated. She called and let me know about it only after the first operation, because she did not want me to be worried and scared. I couldn’t stop crying after we finished the call. I was in a trap of new job, moving to a new flat and finishing my school. I wanted to be with her and support her as much as she is always supporting me, but I couldn’t leave straight after the news.
Fortunately, I managed to go home, but still only for a few days. Honestly, my mum is very brave, I guess I am more scared than she is. And now after the second operation, she needs to be even stronger and get through the treatment, to heal, to get better and healthy again. I am not writing this to spill out my heart. I just realized in last three months how my dreamy world can be easily broken and how everything can be changed quickly.
My mum has been the biggest fan of my photos. And since I cannot be with her everyday to support her, I decided to send her as often as I can a lomo-postcard made always from one of my more cheerful, happier, colourful photos. I found out that I do not have many of those and here comes the reason of writing this blog. My dear lomo-friends, if you have some cheerful, funny, beautiful, sunny and witty photos and you do not mind me using them for a “get-well-and-be-strong-postcard”, please leave a link to them in the comment. I am sure the collection of postcards we can create in this way will make her happier!
Thanks in advance.
I love you mum!
