  1. Happy Mother’s Day to you, too! Wishing you the kind of day that makes memories for many generations to come.

    Isn’t Mother’s Day just like that?! Perfect set up for turning our thoughts back to the many generations of mothers preceding us, too…

  2. I really like this juxtaposition. She is clearly the same woman, with the same wavy hair and the same rosy cheeks. How wonderful to have this picture. Happy Mother’s Day!

    • Thanks, Mariann. Pretty amazing to see her face at the same angle, 22 years later! I believe this is one of just two or three pix of just my mom and me. Pretty hard to get her alone in a family of 10!
