She had 5 sons and one daughter, and only 4 of the sons lived to be adults. There are now 8 cousins alive as her grandchildren, and many of them are grandmothers themselves.
Below, my mother on the left, with her mother, Moselle Booth Miller Munhall by her side, and my little sister in front. My mother worked most of her adult life outside the home, as well as clothed, cooked and fed us, and cleaned our home! We were glad Dad brought home the bacon!
|These were women of the 50s!|
Last week was Nurses Week, and I'm reminded of the nurturing creative care that these people give, even if not actual mothers.
So whatever may become of us mothers, no matter how our children may have grown and had their own lives, we are still women with memories of lots of joys, sorrows, laughs and sharing.
Happy Mother's Day 2017.
Shared with Sepia Saturday...a bit late this week!
I've been wanting to gather these photos of myself, and my family of mothers and sons...sorry it's not on theme for the Sepians.
