Sentimental Sunday - Mothers' Day

Happy Mothers' Day!

In keeping with the day I am posting a picture of my great grandmother, 
Nancy Regina V. Gruissy Mark
with two of her daughters,
Wava Alice Mark Braun [on left]
and my paternal grandmother,
Ivy Regina Mark Brown
[on right].

This was taken in Ohio where the family lived. I love the big hair bows.  I think if the picture was taken today they'd be smiling and maybe have their arms around each other, the way my daughters & I usually pose.

Family stories tell me my great grandmother was a meticulous housekeeper and strict disciplinarian. She loved gardening & quilting, two things that I love as well. 

Happy Mothers' Day to all moms. Sit back & enjoy your day!

What a lovely photo, and yes, I think my girls and I would pose differently too. I hope you had a great Mother's Day.
