Tuesday Photo Challenge – Mirror

Taking the prompt out on a tangent, I’m going more for a reflective mood.

Mirror images can be seen as reflections of ourselves or perhaps one of what is to come.
When I look in a mirror, most days I see my Mum looking back at me.
That means she is always with me, even though we are 150 miles apart.
As to what she sees when she looks in the mirror is anyone’s guess now but I hope she sees a younger and more healthy version of herself, and with it memories of happier times come into her mind.
I see photographs of mothers and daughters on the internet, and can see the resemblance.
This is a photograph of my Mum, my sister and I taken in June 2015.

And as for me?
Yes, I think I am very much like my Mum, especially in this picture from September last year.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Your second photo makes me wish my mum was still here.

  2. You really do look like your mom!

    People regularly tell me I look like my mom (and sometimes my dad), but I don’t see it (and people would definitely not guess my sister and I are related, let alone sisters!).
