She reminds me of someone. Who?
She's talking to me about something, but I can't really pay attention.....
Something about those eyes, the nose...
Why do I get the feeling that there is someone out there whom she reminds me of??
So I said something to my husband. "Man, she really reminds me of someone, but I can't put my finger on it."
He just looked at me and smiled.
That's when it hit me - (Duh, mom!)
She looks like me!
Dare to compare!!
Ok, so the hair is the wrong color - but that's because she INSISTED that she should be blonde. (She wants to be a model - Lord, help me!)
Maybe she reminds me of my sister instead....
That could be it. I mean, my sister and I always did look a lot alike.
It's just that in that moment, while listening to my darling daughter tell me about something important to her, I was transported back in time 30 years. I was looking at myself in the bathroom mirror. That face I see on her is often the face I see in my mind's eye when I think of myself. The one in the mirror isn't one I recognize anymore. (Good grief, I sound like I have Alzheimer or something!)
I wonder if my mother ever felt this way looking at my sister and me?
Aren't families amazing?
Much Love to All
