Mothers' Day: [B&W and Sepia Post] [pt2]

What better tribute to motherhood can a young girl give ... then dreaming of growing up to be 'just like their mamma'

A YOUNG GIRL'S DREAM

a family album




















Practice and training in the fine art of motherhood starts early



Young girls pay careful attention and give kind words of encouragement to dolly






























They dream of that special day and someday being a bride

























And then they reach the age where their dreams turn to hopes of love and finding that special beau






















Someone to love and carry you through the hard times
























To sweep you off your feet and promise to whisk you away to greener pastures

























































And one day those dreams come true!




























They buy a little home in a nice new estate





















Where their dreams of having babies can become a reality































PERHAPS A BOY






























PERHAPS A GIRL (???)




























There may be hard times, when they will struggle and worry for their future























They may need to turn to the in-laws for advice


























It is then they will take comfort in the extended family and the wisdom and customs that have passed down through the generations






























Knowing at the end of the day... when the children are grown...



there will be time to reflect and enjoy life's rewards




...






























~ THE END ~

















Postscript: Pardon the sillyness. This post started out sincere with a few B&W images I had found. It then took on a life of it's own with the images dictating the script.



IMAGES: Most of the images in this sequence were found at Square America A wonderous website - but beware - you may get lost in here for hours mezmerised by the plethora of images
