“Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present and future.” -Gail Lumet Buckley

My beautiful mother, Patricia, in 1968. She was just 24, and was photographed by her new beaux, my father, on his flashy Triumph Spitfire in Dublin, Ireland.

I love the sparkle in her eyes; she was so happy and in love.

Later, she mothered three girls, all of whom she was very proud.

Sadly, she passed away suddenly when I was just 30 years old. She was just 63. I thought I was all grown up until I lost her.

Sometimes I catch a fleeting glance of her in the mirror and realize she’s still with me. ~shared by @lostandfoundimages
