Where are your jewels?

This sweet photo reminds me of the story of the wealthy woman walking past a poor woman standing with her children.
The wealthy woman, all dressed in fine furs and diamonds turns and asks the mother, "Where are your jewels". The Mom turns to her children...hugging them with her arms and says, "Why, These are my jewels".

Perfect

This is a beautiful photo for Mother's Day! Thanks, Shorpy.

Pretty!

I love mom's floral print dress with rickrack trim.

Do the math

That little kid is around 72 years old now.

Precious Moments

That's about the most precious thing I've ever seen.
