Call Your Mom

If that’s even an option for you. Life is fragile & fleeting & the future of our entire world has never been more unpredictable.

Interesting….

The same people that have been promoting abortion for many years are the same people who won’t let you see your mom this year.

I am going to forgo the usual political bitch fest and post some vintage pictures of my mother today beginning with the youngest to her becoming a mother. I’m the oldest of 6 children, all with the same father if you can believe that. That used to be a thing. Getting married & having children & staying married to the same man, for better or worse.

Guess which one it usually was?

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers. Being a mother has been the most joyful & fulfilling experience of my life. Where there is love, children are a blessing.

Hope your day is great even if you can’t be with your child this year for one reason or another.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting Pink

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!

An earlier Mother’s Day.

I was sometimes called a “girly-girl” which I don’t get except I was very slight of frame and quiet.  I didn’t wear ruffles or pink but preferred a book to sports, kittens to dogs and giggling to gossip.

I grew to love pink, ruffles and lace as I got older and I don’t mean as an old lady, but even into my 30’s I grew fond of the romantic look in clothing and decor.

An outdoor picnic. I made my dress and my son’s outfit.


Reflections are all around us daily but I’m reflecting internally about the time in my life when I actually “mothered.”  I am still a mother but am no longer allowed to act like one.  That sucks.

I love Sean’s expression at 3 months.

My son David used to play a little too rough, age 3. At age 10 he broke a foot right before school started.

Reflections of home.


Reflections in nature.
