There Is No One Alive Who Is Youer Than You

I love this photo of my mother. When I see these old photos, I wonder what her life was like when she was growing up in the Bronx. Of course, I've heard the stories, but the day to day is what I wonder about. I've been to the house in which she was born, and it hasn't changed much since this picture was taken. I wonder what she's clutching in her hand? I will have to ask her, maybe she remembers.

She was two years and ten months old when this was taken. Even with the pout, she's cute as a button. And today is her birthday.

Happy Birthday Mommy!

"Today you are you, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is youer than you."

What a great photo! I often tell my friends with kids that they should try to journal every once in a while for their kids. Because I wish my mom had. Of course, the rub there is, if you have kids, you apparently rarely have free time (I'm told -- I have a dog -- ) and if you do, you probably wouldn't spend it journaling... LOL
