Today was another tough “first”. My mother’s birthday. The first without her. It brought tears, but also a time to reflect and remember. I have shared so many great pictures of her in my blog, but I hope you will indulge me in a few more, as I remember her.
Here’s one of my in high school. I always loved pictures of my mom when she was younger. We rarely think of our mothers as young, beautiful, sexy… but she was!
Her second favorite role? Mother. This is one is from my brother Joe’s First Communion. So I guess this is about 1968? Funny that, after all these years, I’m back to the hair style that my mother always insisted that I have! 🙂
I said Motherhood was “second” and that’s because Grandmother-hood took over the first spot with the birth of Katherine in 1990. There were so many grandmother pictures to choose from, but here’s two cute ones of Mom with Ethan. He totally adored her. She was my best friend, but I think it’s easy to say she was Ethan’s best friend as well.
Miss you, Mom. Love you lots!
