While working on my family tree I began to be so appreciative of all the Mothers that came before me. I wouldn't be here if not for my own Mother, Grandmothers and all the way back in time. Both of my Grandmothers had many children, which was normal back then but a tough life for them. I can't even imagine what that took. No luxuries of life to help them or make being a housewife easier.
This is the time of year that I miss my own Mother terribly. It's a bittersweet feeling as I help others celebrate still having their own Moms. Being a Mother, Grandmother or Great Grandmother is a beautiful accomplishment and I wish all of you a Happy Mother's Day.
