A Mother’s Love Can’t Be Matched

posted May 11, 2018 by Kathy Pinna
It's the most difficult job in the world - and the most rewarding! If you're a parent (or a child), you know what that means: nothing compares to a mother's love for her children. This collection of vintage photos from the last 125+ years remind us all of the love between every mother and child. There is so much that we can celebrate about the mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers who have been in our lives and the photos remind us of how much we've been blessed by these women. If they're still with you, honor them. If they're not, honor their memory.

Did you know? Mother's Day became a U.S. holiday in 1914 but we're sure you'll agree - if you’ve ever been a mother or had a mother (and that's all of us) that every day should be mother's day. Mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers - they all love us unconditionally, take care of us, and support us through every stage of our life.

Moms can be stylish

She has a 4 month old and she's managed to shower and dress up? We're impressed!

It looks like this little girl adored her Mom.

Four generations of women - the first born in Wales, the 2nd born in England, the 3rd born in Seattle, and the 4th born in California.

You can tell it's the 1920's from the Marcel or finger wave.

Like mother, like daughters - in the 1920s

Can't you just tell that they're related?

Fashionable family!

The daughter's hat is a real standout!

Over 100 years old, this photo looks like it was taken yesterday.
