Mothers and Daughters on Mother's Day




Forty-nine years and nine month's ago, I became a daughter and this beautiful woman became a mother for the first time. How lucky I was to be the first born to this special lady!!! She was beautiful then and she is still today. And, as beautiful as she is on the outside, she's more beautiful on the inside. She would, and has, done anything for me and I know that I can always count on her support, guidance and love. My mom lives in Virginia and I live in Michigan so I don't get to see her nearly as often as I'd like. We always have a great time together because we like the same things - antiques, shopping, crafting (she's an amazing sewer but I did not inherit that talent), we think the same, find the same things funny and now, many of my friends say we look a lot alike ~ I'll let you decide that for yourself. This picture was taken this past Christmas when she and my dad were visiting us for the holidays. I love spending time with this beautiful woman and I so wish we could spend the day together today. I miss you, Mom and wish you a very, very Happy Mother's Day! I love you with all my heart!!!

Happy Mother's Day!

Peace,
Terri

Terri, you DO look very much alike.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day. I have three out of five kids with me today at the beach. Not too bad!

Hope you Mother's Day is filled with love and happiness! (You and your mom do look alike.) Dick and I are spending the day in the yard getting ready to put in a new flower bed - can't wait! He got me 9 lavender plants and they are in the ground. Later we are all gathering at my folk's house, can't wait to spend some time with my parents, children and granddaughter. Talk to you soon, Dawn

You and your mother definitely do look alike - but more like sisters than mother and daughter :)

Jan said...

Oh yes, my vote is that you look very like your mother. So that makes you beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. That is really a very good picture!!

Enjoy the rest of your day, here is hoping you get to see your dear momma soon!

Terri, what a beautiful photo of you and your Mum. Your post made me cry. Also, happy birthday for yesterday to your son Matt. Hope you had a great day.

Indeed you do look alike and she does not look old enough to have a daughter your age!

I wish you both a wonderful Mother's Day!

Terri, thank you so much for your kind words. I remember every detail of the day you were born. You have always been a joy and have given me many memories to hold deep in my heart. I loved having you for a daughter, and am thankful God picked me to be your mom. Had he given me a choice, I would have picked you. I hope you are enjoying being a mom as much as I have and still do. Happy Mother's Day to you!!
