Mother's Day Memories and Musings

OK, I'm going to sound VERY old here....

Do you find, as I do, that as the years pass, "time flying" becomes almost exponential?

It doesn't seem that long ago I was looking forward to my first Mother's Day as a new Mom...

And now my baby is all grown.

Lucky girl has her Father's curly locks. :)

I think too about my own Mother, a young bride here, showing her wedding ring, just about a year prior to my birth...

And leaving for her honeymoon...

So happy they were. I just love these photos. They seem almost iconic.

Dad passed just over 30 years ago, and Mom has long since remarried. I don't have any recent pics, but she's just as beautiful and just as happy today. :)

I'm not sure if being a grandmother is in the cards for me or not, but I hope so. And I hope when the time comes, I'm a good one. No matter how quickly time flies, I hope I remain young at heart, and young in spirit, always open minded, always creative, and always a little bit quirky.

Wishing that for all of us, in fact, and wishing all the Moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day!

Carolee this was such a lovely post. I've also spent time recently thinking of how quickly time passes. I still think of myself as young but when your youngest grandchild is a grown woman, it makes you wonder how all that time could get by you so quickly. Have a very wonderful Mother's day.
