This is a picture of my mom holding me on her very first Mother's Day in 1964. I love these women--my mom, my grandma, and my great grandma. Their motherhood lives on as I sing the same Scottish lullaby to my own children that my great grandma sang to her children. Knowing and learning about their lives explains my own.
Mom and I
(I must say that I adore my mom's outfits and shoes.)
Mom, Dad, and I
My mom made our matching dresses.
(I never knew that my dad wore white socks and penny loafers!)
My maternal grandparents and I
My paternal grandparents and I
I am so grateful for my mother and the generations of mothers that preceded her. Happy Mother's Day, Mom. I love you!
