Happy Mother's Day!

To all moms out there, but especially to my dearest mother, Amma - my friend, guide, philosopher, recipe consulter, doctor, reprimander, rebuker, soother, pacifier, shopping and Scrabble partner.......
......and my grandmother, Ammamma - 89 years old, still singing sweetly but softly, who struggles to remember what happened yesterday, but can recall every minute detail of her wedding day 72 years ago! 
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY  TO BOTH OF YOU! 

My grandma, age 16, circa 1938, pre-wedding
my mom, age 18, 1958, pre-wedding
my mom and me, I was a few months old, 1961
The three of us in 2010.......ages 88, 70 and 49!!!!!
Happy Mother's Day!

Beautiful pics, yes you do look a lot like your mom :) I am blown away by the simplicity of those b/w pics, the women then had an elegance/glow about them. They didn't wear make up, just nose ring and bindi and looked so pretty! I have a few of my mom's b/w pics like that, gotta take them out and enlarge. Happy belated mother's day to you.
