Today's Theme Thursday is Mom, so I'm showcasing three generations of mothers...through the maternal line.
Here is a picture of my maternal grandma (who I was named Amelia after...so glad she wasn't named something like Kunagunda...no offense to any Kunagundas out there).
This was taken in the year 2000. She passed away in 2006. She was a mom to 3, grandmother to 14 and currently has 12 great grandchildren. She was a super sweet, Italian grandmother who always made sure everyone was well-fed and well-loved.
This is my mom.
She is doing what she does best, being in charge, and holding up my wedding veil which along with my wedding dress was worn by my grandmother, my mother and me.
My mom has 5 children and 4 grandchildren.
While some would describe my mom as being a formidable presence, which is very true, she always has a super big heart and is always willing to help anyone in need and is/was a great mother.
And, this is me, taken last year on Mother's Day. All 4 of my children are in this picture, but Elsa is still hidden in utero.
Go see Cari for more motherly pictures.
