Mothers And Sons

This began as a Wordless Wednesday post, before I realized I had so much to say about the photos.

These first two are of Motor Man and his mother. She was 18 when he was born.  I’m not sure of the date of the first photo, but it was taken during the time that Motor Man’s dad was overseas during World War II. We celebrated Mother’s Day Sunday by having dinner with her and Motor Man’s dad.

The next pictures are, of course, of Marshall and me. The one on the left was taken on my first Mother’s Day; Marshall was not quite a year old. And the photo on the right was taken Sunday.

Just in case anyone needed a reminder of how quickly time passes.

    Time really does fly by. And, by the way, you look almost the as you did on your first mothers day.

  6. Wonderful pictures Dianna. I love how in the first pictures the mothers are holding the sons and in the second pictures the sons are “holding on to” and towering the mothers 😉 And the flag Marshall gave you is beautiful!

  7. Lovely Dianna! Very sweet pictures. I love the flag too.. 🙂

  8. Great pictures and a barn charm flag. How neat!

  9. I’m sure it probably seems to M.M.’s mom that it was only yesterday when she was holding Motor Man in her arms…our children always seem to grow up too fast!

  10. Great photos. Oh…how time goes by so quickly that you don’t seem to have time to enjoy the now before it becomes a memory.

  11. indeed it does… motor man’s mom’s eyes haven’t changed a bit. and your handsome son is sweet, too. 🙂

  12. So, so sweet! And I have a love/hate relationship with that ‘time passes quickly’ reminder!

  13. What a lovely flag! It’s perfect. Don’t you love the hats the ladies wore “back in the day?”
