No wonder


Mom and me

I see in my face, yours--the eye, the nose, the chin.
Your upturned hand where a damsel had rested.
Is it any wonder,
you were my mother?

Sometimes the nicest posts are simple and sweet and say volumes in a single photo, a few words…and a lovely memory.

Thank you for sharing this. You have captured it all!

What a beautiful tribute to your mother. And, you do resemble her very much. Looks like she was having a relaxing day in the boat. Have a nice day.

Nina, your Mother must have been an amazing woman! Love this photo. Thanks for sharing it with us. Happy Mother's Day to you.

BTW, I've posted about Nature Remains on my blog today with another set to go on Tuesday. Thank you once again for your kindness and generosity. I had a great time with you!
