Happy Mother’s Day Coming Full Circle

First and foremost, I’d like to wish all of my readers a Happy Mothers Day! There is no thrill quite like that of being a mother.

For my mothers day post, I wanted to share with you the generations of mother/daughter pairs that leads right up to myself and my daughter. If you take some time  to look at it like this, it’s actually pretty neat. I encourage you to do the same, and take a look at the strong, wise women who came before you. 🙂

She had seven children, dozens of grandchildren, and even more great-grandchildren. What I most remember about my Great-Grandma is her letters. Her and I used to write letters back and forth to each other for years. It was a way for me to work on my writing skills, and for her to keep up to date on everything going on in my neck of the woods. I also remember her dog, Bouncer. He was a feisty little Pomeranian who went EVERYWHERE with my Great Grandma.

She had three children, and (currently) five grandchildren, plus two great-grandchildren. What I most remember about my Mamaw is her elegance. Everything she did was so lady-like, to a very old-fashioned extreme. Sure, she had a wild side, but a good example would be the time I told her I had to ‘pee.’ She told me that ladies did not ‘pee,’  they ‘tinkled.’ I also remember her cooking.  Oh my, could she cook!

What I remember most about my Momma were our late-night talks over steaming cups of coffee. Sometimes we would sit outside on the porch (especially if it were fall or a thunderstorm), or in the kitchen. I could talk to her about anything, and she never judged me. I was never afraid to ask her something, tell her something. She could always make me laugh – I inherited her sense of humor, which is very sarcastic and a good bit twisted. I also  remember how well she could cook. Oh gosh, her food was amazing!

Me & my baby girl, Vikki. I was born in 1990, in Tampa, Florida. Vikki (yes,named after my Momma) was born in 2009, in Dade City, Florida. I was young when I became a mother, but there is nothing like it in the world. From the second I saw her, I knew a love like only a mother can.

What about your direct maternal line? Where did you come from? What awesome mothers came before you? Let me know! Feel free to share pictures!
