My Mother Daughter Photos
L-R Upper to Lower
So often genealogists work only on the male line but so much of who we are comes down to us not with the name but with the mothering.
In my family, genealogy has been enjoyed by both the men and the women. My Grandmother Marnie often assisted my Grandfather and accompanied him on his excursions much in the same way as my mother helps me. Mom and I have great fun hanging out together while we 'dig up' our roots. I thank God everyday for having given me such a wonderful family but in particular such a wonderful Mom.
Whenever I'm feeling down or blue my mother always reminds me that I come from a long line of strong women and if ever I forget it I only have to look at these photos to remind me. Each of the women in these photos had their own history of hardship and joy. Many suffered the loss of their children, their homes, or their husbands, but all perservered and found faith in the Love of God. I hope that everyone who sees this page is reminded of their own mother and her mother before her......
