I was looking through the pictures on my phone and when I saw this photograph of Maman I decided to share it with you. She looks so happy in this picture. She was happy that day, I remember. Anna described the occasion perfectly in her memories about Maman (click here if you want to read more), so I will use her words as mine probably would not do it justice. So that's what she said:
"I also remember a lovely day we spent with Maman, Baba, Homa, Hooshang, Fardin, Elizabeth and Kian by the lake. It was a sunny day; with the blue sky, green vegetation and water reflecting all the colours, the view was stunning. We all walked around and then had a little BBQ and just chilled out and enjoyed the atmosphere. I made a head piece from flowers for Maman. She was laughing and I really like the picture of her taken at that time (it is included in the photo gallery of this page). For some reason when I think of Maman I remember her as in this picture: although already very unwell, but happy, hopeful, jolly and somehow careless and laid back as this beautiful sunny day by the lake."
She described the very same picture I came across today. I like it as well. My phone says that it was taken on the 2nd April 2013 in Cumming, Georgia in USA. It seems like a very long time ago...
