My Mothers!

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful individuals who have ever taken on the enormous responsibility of caring for another living creature. I am so thankful today for the women who have shaped and influenced my life, especially my own mom and my grandmothers. I thought I'd share a few of my favorite vintage photos in honor of the day. I don't have very many older pictures of my family so these are incredibly precious to me!
Great-great-grandpa William with great-grandma Etta
and great-uncle Albert, c. 1916. This is a sad photo to me,
since their young mama had passed away, leaving a widower
and two very small children.
And doesn't Etta look almost exactly like my Anne?!

My teenage great-grandma, Etta, and great-grandpa Floyd
c. 1930 

And their daughter,
little Marjorie, my darling grandmother, c. 1933 or 1934. My own little Rose
resembles her so much!

Marjorie, my beautiful grandma. We
share the same birthday. c. 1945

Marjorie, c. 1950

My grampie, Harold and grandma, Marjorie on their wedding day.
This photo hangs in my sewing room and I can rarely look at it
without shedding tears of both happiness and grief. Both of my beautiful
grandparents are now free from the bonds of this earth, but they live forever in my heart. 

My other gorgeous grandma, Judy and my grandpa, David
c. 1960
My own amazing mom and myself, c. 1987! Isn't she beautiful?! She still is!
