A Happy Mother's Day random photo collage.jpg

I'm posting this today, since tomorrow is officially Mother's Day in my little corner of the world, and while we don't have any plans, I figure I'll spend the day away from social media anyway.

Here are eighteen photos, chosen rather randomly, of some of the mothers in my life, as well as the little ones (not so little now) who made me a mother.

Paternal Grandmother - Nana Cavanaugh

What a great tribute to the women in your life!

Thanks so much, @papacrusher! I just tagged my mother and aunt over on Facebook - I'm hoping they'll forgive the lack of Mother's Day card because of this... LOL!

Wow! What a wonderful collection of family photos! Now you don't have to make the trip to Gloucester! haha!

Awesome post. I love the pic of you on your moms knee where she is leaning away from you and staring..I can read her mind.."What? Did this one come from my genes..." or "Is this mine?" ...LOL

Thanks, @themagus! And yes, ever since I found that photo, it's been a running joke that it's the look my mother always has on her face when she sees me... LOL!

Such beautiful photo's. I always enjoy the old school ones from back in the day. There's always something so special about them. Happy Mothers Day to you too.

Thank you so much, @jusipassetti and I completely agree! I love seeing old photos from other people, as well as my family. Hope you had a wonderful Sunday!

This is a gorgeous tribute. I love this idea. That one in Feb 1966 cracks me up. I really want to know what you were doing that gave your mother that face :)

Thank you, @onethousandpics! If you ask my mom, she'll say I was just being me and she's never stopped looking at me like that... LOL!

ha ha in that case I think we might be kindred spirits :D

Sounds like a definitely possibility... LOL! 😊
