I’ve always been grateful for the positive influence my Mother, my Nana, and my Great-grandmother had on me in my formative years. My mother and I had to leave my father in the early 60s. We left our country life and came to live in the city – We had no home, no money, no furniture, only our clothes – but we did have each other.
Fortunately, we went to live at my grandparent’s home where my aging great-grandmother was also living. The men in this family always worked away, and the women’s bond seemed to hold a quiet confidence. They had a resilience that was born out of caring for each other and being connected to their community.
I am who I am today because of these extraordinary women. –
Much Love To My Blessed Ancestors
