Photohunt: Mother


Mother's Day. It has been 9 years since my mother died. April 2001. She was almost 85. I came late in her life and a second marriage. I can not say it was 'strange' growing up with a Mother who was in her 50's. That was all I knew. We had wonderful times in the late '60s - going out to dinner, driving around the Haight in San Francisco, going to junk stores looking for antiques, teaching me to sew.

I married and left. We grew apart. The last years were tough as she slipped into dementia from a stroke. The picture above was from one of the few times she visited me in Seattle in 1983.

Here's a link to a previous post I wrote about my mother and pictures. I also posted a picture of her when I wrote about dragonfruit.

Take time this weekend to celebrate your mother.

we always have good and bad memories of our mothers. but still, they're one of the most important persons in our lives.

That's a lovely photo, Marta. And some lovely memories.


A nice photo that I have a feeling you treasure.

Interesting to read that that photo is from 1983. With fashions being what they are, it actually seems so current...

So so beautiful. A wonderful, loving tribute.

Here is my collage for the theme...my mom, me and my daughter. HERE

Happy Mother's Day.

Great memoirs of your mom. My mom died 10 years ago too and I do missed her a lot. Happy Mother's day!

Mother Nature

What a great tribute and an excellent angle on this week's theme. Happy Mother's Day tomorrow.

Good memories

Great shot - I can see the family resemblance. Your mother sounds like she was a great character!

Lovely reading about your mom. Mother's Day can be tough.

Awww, what a sweet post.

I miss my Mom too, especially today.

It does sound like you had fun together. Makes me realize I was lucky to spend the day with my mom yesterday.

Wonderfully sentimental post, Marta. Thanks for sharing. I was the youngest in a family with an older mother - never bothered me either. She died when I was 16, but still have fond memories. Something special about moms.

Hi Marta, a very lovely post about your mom and I loved reading about the special times you had with her. I really enjoyed reading your past posts again too. It's nice to have such beautiful memories to remember on special days like Mother's Day. Hope you had a very wonderful weekend.

Hi Marta,
Thank you for sharing this important part of your life. It made me stop and remember all of the wonderful fun things I used to do with my mom while growing up.
