mothers and daughters
me and hannah four days old.
in celebration of five generations of mothers and daughters in my family. here are my three daughters. i never imagined how much they would capture my heart. it is a bittersweet year for me as a mother. my oldest is graduating and moving on to the next place in her life. she is ready to be on her own now and her life outside the nest is pulling at her. though i don't know what we will do without her. then my youngest will be starting first grade next year and for the first time in ten years i won't have one of my own children in my class.
here are three generations of women who have shaped my life. my mother joan

frances, my great-grandmother who i never met, but must have been a beautiful soul to have raised my grandmother to be who she is.
