Mother’s Day



My mother passed away close to 10 years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her, wish I could talk to her, and wish that I had said the things that were in my heart while she was still here.  I know she knew that I loved her, but telling someone daily is something that everyone should do, and they should do it often. 

I found these old sketches.  They are not the best but I post them in honor of Mother’s day.  The gradually darkening of the sketches represents the division of years. In these photos I can see the differences in the generations.  They depict my grandmother my mother, and me all around the age of 27.

Whenever I meet someone who knew my mother when she was young, they often tell me that I look just like her. We were polar opposites in personality, but when I hear of my resemblance I am glad that apples didn’t fall too far from the tree.

Now, go tell your mother you love her! 

Happy Mother’s Day!

What a nice keepsake to have. This reminds me of a photo collage my mom put together with 5 generations of women starting with my girls in the center then surrounding them me, my mom, her mom and so on. I like it, too. Happy Mother's Day.

Awesome captured family history and thank you for sharing your thoughts/story.

Also want to thank you for visiting my new and improved blog, and hope that when I have set it up to take over, you will join me in a weekly writing experience JOP/Jumping Off Places. May put up a vote to see which due date is best for the majority cause there seems to be other things of involvement that are on Fridays. The type of post here is a great way to express your writing in JOP.
