May we make a recommendation? This is when we point you toward a piece of journalism that isn't ours, but is worth your time.

Approaching Mother's Day, Edan Lepucki asks us to reconsider how we think of our mothers, specifically as we never saw them in their younger years before children.

Her op-ed weaves together photos of women, and thoughts from their daughters about what looks familiar, and which characteristics appear to be from a long-lost time.

Lepucki writes, "I've come to wonder what traits we allow our mothers to have, and which ones we view as temporary, expiring with age and the beginning of motherhood."

It's a Mother's Day weekend invitation to consider our mothers' lives... in full.

The pictures are worth a few minutes of your time. You can check it out here.
