Today I celebrate three New Hampshire mothers in photographs….
My mother Mary in the 1940s, pre-children, and with her constant camera.
My maternal grandmother, Addie Ryan Manning, as a young woman
My paternal grandmother, Mattie Kilborn Webster, as a teen-aged girl
All three of these women raised families in New Hampshire.
Happy Mother’s Day!
For those of you whose mothers are still alive–remember to give them a hug today, and tell them that you love them. If they live far from you, call them. No matter how many hugs and kisses I gave to the women pictured above over the years, I wish I had given them more.
