My Granny Bea
Beatrice Elizabeth for whom many future children are named
She looks a little surrounded
can you say Thobi Ohoyo(white woman)?
She meant the world to me and I think about her kindness every single day of my life!
I miss her like crazy..she was my rock!
my sister who is married to my oldest brother
she's been in my life since I was 12 and his since he was 13
She tried to teach me and her aunt..(yes her aunt is 2 years younger than her) to smoke
I think she was trying to flirt with my brother
This is how she looks on the inside too!
My sister Tracy
she is younger than me and is one of the best mom's in
tarnation! She mothers us all!
She's a knock out!
My sister married to my middle brother
I adore her...she is cool, fun and spunky and she has snackipoos
She is so gosh darn pretty and did I say I adore her?
Charles who will make Jena a mother someday
Mattie Beatrice who will be a mother someday
Grace...my favorite young mother and my daily inspiration with her
patience and incredible love
she is a hippy gypsy soul of my soul
they all are
I am their mother, but now we are friends
Betty Beatrice who I'm sure will be the mother of all mothers
she kind of already is taking the place of Tracy
My baby brother Ross created two mothers but he's the best "boy" mother I know!
I attended a wedding this January where the Father Priest told the bride this,
"your number one goal in your life is to see to it that your husband and children go to heaven"
I have thought a great deal about that statement and the huge responsibility we mothers have in the
molding, shaping and creating of those who are put in our arms straight from heaven
there are other mothers who may not have children born from their womb, but are just as instrumental in filling a jar of clay with life giving water
It is a holy place
this heart that loves a child
and then children and more children and
on an on
goes the potter's wheel
