Maternal pride

Real life has kept me busy these past few weeks and I miss my blog. I just came across a couple old photos and thought they deserve to be posted here.

Here I am, dark brunette that I was, holding Jenn. And here's my mom, one of my favorite pics of her and her grandson, Joe. Look at mom's face - such joy! That chubby little baby would grow up to be the first doctor in the family, ever. That determined little girl would grow up to be an artist and a writer, a seeker of truth.

Now these "babies" have babies of their own. I wonder who they will grow up to be ... that brunette now has her mother's gray hair.

It's a blessing to stop every so often and freeze-frame a memory or two.
