Oh, yes. Lovely. I've been looking for my grandmother in the mirror recently.

TC said...

You just wrote my worst nightmare. *shudder*

Michelle Johnson said...

I used to think I didn't look like either of my parents when I was young but, as an adult I look into that mirror much like you and see their faces. This was a beautiful read. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day.

Vixen said...

WOW. What timing. That just happened to be the other day. And reading this stopped me once again in my tracks.

Great job.

Ha, ha! This can't apply to me! Just wish my Dad would get out of my face :-)

Loved it.

Tammy said...

Yes! I see mom every morning. Well done! Loved the hummingbird fractal. :)

Erica (Mom's Journal) said...

Ack! I agree with tc - that's gotta be one of my worst nightmares. Not aging mind you, just looking like my mother! :P

Remiman said...

Sue,
It's curious isn't it that inextricably we see our forebearors in our own reflection?
When as a boy folks would comment to my father, "your son looks just like you," he'd answer, "that's his cross to bear." ;)

I would be honored to look like my mom at 82! She is an inspiration!

Just someone said...

Nice read; I could relate to it, since everyone says (I know) I look like my mother, :)
Thanks for sharing and also thank you for taking the time to comment!

Very nice. I wanted to do a haiku but I really have no experience with that genre.

Jujee said...

Related to that Haiku. It's one of those engraving insight moments.

Medhini said...

that was sweet. Says it all!

I was adopted--look like my adoptive father without the big nose and moustache. Would love to look like my real (adoptive) mother

Met my birthmother and fortunately have totally opposite features. Apparently I have her mothers face

Wonderful hiaku
