Some Mothering

This post first appeared last year and I think it's well worth repeating, with some additional faces. The first time I published it, it took forever just to gather the images, to double check that I was representing as many mothers as possible and then to format all of them etc. I didn't have time or energy left to name names + I am totally paranoid about misspelling and mislabeling. This seemed like a ripe opportunity to make a classic, if innocent, goof-up. Another thing that I thought a lot about is this... I know many women who are not technically mothers and yet they definitely posses the strength and caring, the nurturing and dedication... doting aunts, dear friends, generous women... is there a name for them, do we recognize those kinds of mothers? I think we should. Happy Mothers' Day to all the women who care and give, and support and inspire. We make a good team.


  1. What a wonderful tribute to all the women in your life.

    I wish you a special Mother's Day too!!


  2. Happy Mother's Day, Natalie!!! *hugs and kisses*

  3. Thinking of you today, Natalie. Thanks for the 'pain story!

  4. Inspiring photos.
    Your post reminds me of my mother's day post from a year ago:

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. (I've answered your question there.)

  5. What a beautiful collection of photos... so much love.
    Happy Mother's Day!

  6. Even though I dont know these women or their families I got a little teary eyed. I looked at each picture and enjoyed each smile. And it reminded me I need to take more pictures of us as a group. Thanks.

  7. Talk about "girl power!"...such a lovely post for mom's day, Natalie...Like Tara, I found myself very moved by each photo and the smiles all around... Hope you had a beautiful Mother's Day, my friend :o) ((HUGS))
