my mum in me

mum'sPhoto by Poppy (aged three and a half).

I like this photo because Poppy took it, and because in this shot I think I look like my Mum.  She was an amazing women.   I am honoured to be like her in the way I live and care for others and it’s special to catch moments where I look like her.  It is a reminder that in some ways, parts of Mum live on in me and while that is tinged with sorrow it is also humbling and wonderful.
