It has been 319 days since the last time I hugged my son and three weeks since his last letter came in the mail. My instincts tell me that he has gotten himself in trouble again. Being a 'prison mamma' is not easy and I am really trying to keep my faith in 'the system.' I really miss him. Sigh.

Have a good weekend everyone!

    Being from the east coast I can appreciate the beauty and tranquility of the ocean. Beautiful paintings.

    Personally I prefer Shadows on the Sea. The Cliffs at Pourville. The painting makes me want to go skinny dippin' ;)

    I know you miss Rusty...He will be back in SD soon.

    I'm sorry you have to go through all this.

    It's beautiful!

    I can't imagine how difficult it must be to be cut off from your son like this. Hopefully, once he gets out he will never put either of you in this position ever again.

    Take care hon. *HUGS*
