Happy Mother's Day

In an era -- Winter, 1951 -- when pictures were more of a luxury
 
 
Here I am, squirming away in my mother's arms. I'm six, or so, months old and my mother and I are in my grandparent's yard. I was supposed to be the first of several children, but the others never came. My mother always said, "I thank G'd for my one." Today, twenty six years after my mother died, and every day, I thank G'd for my mother.
 
Happy Mother's Day to mothers, to aunts, to godmothers, to mothers of fur babies and to all who mother and love.

I have such fond memories of your mother. The kitchen table was always such a welcoming place! I remember our visits, and I was probably 4? Sylvia and Rose were quite a pair!

We must be close to the same age. I was born in April of 1951 and I posted a picture of me with my mother! Happy Mother's Day!

A precious photo to cherish. Time eases the pain of the loss of our moms but we miss them, don't we? As I grow older, I also realize more and more just how much she did for me.
