A memory is a photograph taken by the heart...to make a special moment last forever...and of all the memory-pictures that happy times can bring, the best are those that families make together ~

A special birthday present to Mom ~

~ Happy Birthday, Mom...we love and miss you very much ~

I want to thank Vickie over at Photos by BeNotForgot for NASA's "Fly your Face in Space" idea. What a wonderful gift to give and I thought it perfectly suited for mom on this day. She loved to fly and she was an adventurous women...so, I submitted her face in space...I know she would just love this.

The shuttle, "Endeavour" is scheduled to launch on April 19th, 2011 for the  STS-134  final mission into space. Endeavour, is scheduled to return and land on April 29th, 2011...once the shuttle lands, I will be able to pick-up mom's Flight Certificate!

Thank you again, Vickie,  for sharing and for also suggesting the idea to take a screen shot, I would not have known to do that.

I know this isn't your usual photo of the day but I did create desktop wallpaper and took a photo (not the above) so I am hoping it counts a little.


  1. Good for you Gini. I saw Vicki's posting and knew you were interested. This is very exciting, and I hope to remember when the Endeavour goes up, please remind us.

  2. Thank you Barbara...I sure will.

  3. Gini, this is amazing! What a wonderful idea for your mom! I love what Vicki did also. I am thinking of doing it for my dad, he learned to fly and owned a Cessna! I left a message on Vicki's post saying that I might have to be a copycat! I am thinking it would be a fun gift for my dad. I am so fortunate to still have him with us!

  4. I think it's an amazing gift . . . I can't thank Vickie enough for sharing her idea and post with us. It's neat to know that mom was flying up in the stars and the universe!
