In Judaism, we have an expression in Hebrew: “L’dor V’dor” or “From Generation to Generation.” When I think of my mother and my grandmother and all of the women in my family who stood before me, I think about all of the traditions that we have each passed down for so many years. It is always what runs through my mind on Mother’s Day as I try to appreciate the non-Hallmark greeting card aspects of this holiday. There is nothing like a Mother, and I consider it an honor and a blessing to carry on all of the lessons learned from these ladies.
So, without further ado, I would like to introduce you to the female “L’dor V’dor” of my family. Here we are:
My grandma, Marie:
My beautiful Mommy:
Me with my amazing children:
One of the two joys of my life, my daughter:
These are the ladies that make up Mother’s Day for me, and I love sharing all of us with all with you. My song of the day is The Who singing “My Generation,” because this day is all about sharing generations.
