How Much Your Mother Loves You

Photo of my mother, Judy Dagle Swanay, and me; September 1963. I was about 1 month old. (Original photo in possession of Elizabeth O'Neal)

"You'll never really know how much your mother loved you until you become a mother yourself."

My mother used to say this all the time. I never understood what it meant until I had my daughter.

I love that she's barefoot in this photo...a woman after my own heart!

my mom always said that to me also and she is right you never understand the love for a child until you have your own. Found you on Mom Bloggers!
