As with all of you, I have a life behind the blog that is glimpsed through my sharing here. This week there has been a lot going on behind the scenes.
Today we will be celebrating the life and memories of my grandmother with our extended family.
4/13/32 - 6/21/11
She was known to us as "Mamaw".
She was blessed with a very big family.
Seriously, you should see it when we all get together! :)
She was one of 9 in her family. She had 6 children, 9 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren (so far!).
When I think of how she has impacted my life, if I had to name the greatest thing she taught me, it would be an unwavering work ethic. She was one of the hardest workers I've ever known. Until the very end.
This is something regularly and often even unknowingly applied in my life and something I fervently teach my children as well. Thank you Mamaw.
She was a tiny woman who loved her family intensely and protected and provided like a mama bear. She was the caretaker of the family, always with children at her heals or on her lap.
She will never be forgotten.
She will always be loved.
