Momsie's Day

Even at this tender age, I was
not a beach girl.  Note expression.
(Doesn't Mom look like Jackie K?)

I like to think that I celebrate my mother every day.  I love her to pieces and am very happy and lucky that she is still such a big part of my life.  My youngest sis found this photograph of Mom and me.  It made my heart just rocket right up and lodge in my throat.

Happy Mother's Day to my own, sweet mother and to all the rest of you wonderful gals out there!

  1. What a great photo!
    You are indeed fortunate to have your mom. It's been 14 years and I still miss mine.
    ( though--truth be told, there were sure days that she drove me crazy!!)

    1. Sue - I think that we (and they) love us despite our flaws. I know I drove my mother to distraction for years. I owe her.

  3. What a wonderful photo! And, yes, your mom certainly does strongly resemble Jackie Kennedy in it. My daughter and I were recently discussing why bonnets like the one you're wearing went out of style. They were so useful for little ones out in the sun. I have a picture of my male cousin and me (both of us about 3 years old) standing in Grandma and Grandpa's back yard. His mom had put one of my bonnets on him because the sun was so bright. I'm sure he'd be delighted to see that photo now. Back in the day, there were also winter ones to shield baby's eyes on bright days outdoors.

    Thank you for the Mother's Day greetings. I know your furry kids appreciate you big bunches as their mom!

    1. Mama Pea - She made that bonnet - I think it would be great to have an adult version. Maybe that's something I will put on The List. Hope you had a wonderful day!

  6. Aw, nice picture! And I love that you're warily looking at the water - that would have been me too. :)

    1. Amy - I was probably looking at the sand with horror and even more horror at the water beyond...
