A Happy Mother’s Day random photo collage

I’m posting this today, since tomorrow is officially Mother’s Day in my little corner of the world, and while we don’t have any plans, I figure I’ll spend the day away from social media anyway.

Here are eighteen photos, chosen rather randomly, of some of the mothers in my life, as well as the little ones (not so little now) who made me a mother.
