Mom and Me - I Smile for the Camera

Dear footnoteMaven has come up with another excellent Carnival - I Smile for the Camera. The first Carnival is a picture showing mother's love.

Well, I found this one in my family picture collection - I think it qualifies!

Who is the baby? Moi!!!! The picture was probably taken in early 1944 in front of my parents rented house at 577 Twin Oaks Avenue in Chula Vista.
Needless to say, the love I felt from my mother captured in this photo lasted her whole life, for which I am grateful and thankful. In retrospect, I wish that I had spent more time with her throughout our married life.
Here is my Mother's Day tribute to my mother last year. Reading this again brought tears to my eyes, a prayer to my heart and thankfulness to my head.

Great photo! And the funny thing is...I can actually see the resemblance. Your eyes are the same today! You can really see your mother's love in the way she's looking at you.
