What characteristics did you inherit from your mother? On this Mother’s Day weekend, I hope you will think about what your mother’s influence has meant in your life.
My mother is the oldest girl of eight siblings. Her youth was both joyous and difficult. She helped to raise seven brothers and sisters during troublesome times, and as a result, is a very independent, self-sufficient person. I never wanted for clean clothes, home-sewn dresses, or haircuts (as you can see, LOL). There were continuous lessons on manners, and whether she knew it or not at the time, those lessons have helped me have strength for life’s challenges over the past 50+ years. I am thankful for it all.
What will your legacy be? Now is a good time to reflect as we come to the end of another school year.
