Mothering Sunday

Today is Mother’s Day, and it makes me look backwards and forwards at the same time as I think of my mother, as well as my own children and being so thankful for them. I got out some old photographs of my mother and realised how much she looked like her own mother when they were both children. What do you think?

Looking at these two photographs I see such a similarity between the two of them. And even when they were older, the likeness remained.

So, today I remember my mother, and her mother and send love to them both.

In two days time it will be the anniversary of my mother’s birth, on March the 8th 1927, and I wish to remember that today, also.
