My Mother's Day Blessings

aunt_baker_ma_me_mama_mama_sudie
Almost 20 years ago, my Daddy's sister, my Aunt Baker stands behind her mother, Vivian--Ma to me. I'm standing behind my Mama who is sitting beside her mother, Sudie--Mama Sudie to me. We're in Mama and Daddy's backyard where we gathered for Mother's Day. I don't know the exact year, the mid to late 1980s is my best guess.

All beautiful moms.

BTW, I just posted a creative use of marquee shot, like an answer to what you have posted about a month ago.

This is an interesting post. I must have been in one of the doctor's offices and missed this. Anyway, it is a nice post and tribute to the moms in your life. Nice photograph and great writing.

Lovely photos.

But I'm a bit mixed up on who is who. But I think you are standing, in the middle of the first photo...
