Mother's Day

>> Sunday, May 10, 2009

Mom, her older sister, and Grandma (1952)

Mom would have been about 16, her older sister in her late 20's and Grandma 49 years old.

I don't usually do any sort of Mother's Day post because at this point in our lives, we're childless orphans so Mother's Day is pretty much a non-event at our house. However a few weeks ago I received this picture in the mail (a different aunt had found it among some pictures she was sorting). I liked this picture a lot and decided to post it today.

Happy Mother's Day to all of my friends who mother me when I need it most.

Your Mom was surely special - she raised you after all :)

Love the pic! You look like your mom!

Carrie 5/10/2009 9:44 AM  

I think you look like your mum too! Weren't the clothes back then just so fine!?

Don't you love the pictures of our mothers when they were younger? They look so glamorous, and somehow, more mature than the girls of today. I think each one in your picture is lovely, and although it's a bit tricky being a 'childless orphan' I'm glad that we had mothers who loved us.

What a treat for your aunt to send this to you. It's a beautiful picture and I'm sure it's one you will treasure!

I love pictures like this! How great!

Thanks for sharing! I love old photos like this.

I was thinking the exact same thing as Bellezza. My mom and her girlfriends looked so much more sophisticated and mature in their teens and twenties than I did at the same age. I have an black-and-white photo of my mom when she was in her early teens and I swear it looks like a publicity shot a model or movie star would sign!

Melissa: you would have liked her a lot.

Karen: that's what I noticed when I saw this.

Carrie: it's funny - most of the pictures of her when she was older (and heavier) the resemblance isn't there, but when she was thinner it sure is.

Bellezza: absolutely - I was surprised when I did the math and figured out she was 16 in this one.

Bonnie: definitely treat to get this in the mail.

Kailana: me too!

Teddy Rose: they're fun, aren't they?

Les: exactly! I think it's partly because we dress so much more casually.

What a great photo! Thanks for sharing! I can relate to the orphan bit and although I'm not childless, Mother's Day was pretty dull. I got a phone call from my eldest (who spent Mother's Day with his girlfriend's family), the husband left town, and kiddo bought me a pocket angel then disappeared into his room to read comic books. :)

Bookfool: isn't it a great picture. I thought about you a lot on Mother's Day. Did you plant something in honor of your Mom?

What a wonderful picture!

Even though it's a long way off, I fear the day when I no longer have a mom to celebrate Mother's Day with. Fortunately, all of my grandparents are still alive too, so longevity seems to run in the family. ;)

Eva: thanks - I really liked the picture. You're lucky to have all your grandparents.
