Dignified Remembering a time when the older women in the community held their heads high at all times, setting the example for the younger ones.
Freedom It is imperative that each child, girl, and woman finds her voice! We have been stifled and quieted by abuse, neglect, foolery, ignorance, and hate. There are ways to speak up and speak out while maintaining your self respect!
Under Her Spell It has become more common, unfortunately, for 'The Female' to find herself, for whatever reasons, under the spell of unkind, unloving, and disrespectful relationships. She, the woman, has a voice, and power to shine and be a leading, valuable, needed voice, working along, while standing out proudly in the midst of the male specie. Under her spell, she gets what she needs, with all due respect!

Grand-Daddy The first man in my life! He exhibited strength, loving respect, a great provider, spiritual, wise, disciplined, smart, hard worker, godly, patient, kind, knowledgable, with a sense of humor!
Strength She is strong under some of the worse circumstances and her priority is for her family. As an 'incubator', she carries within her presidents, doctors, lawyers, teachers, nurses, professors, artists, great mothers, leaders, ministers, missionaries, researchers, inventors, agriculturists, chefs, farmers, and more!
Comfort Food brings people together! It comforts, it soothes, it fulfills, it strengthens, and the hand that prepares it is the ultimate symbol of comfort!
Come Sunday Mornin' The first day of the week begins with reverence and recognition of one's faith and belief, for it is there from which all things flow!
Heritage of Faith It is a known fact that there are more women sitting on church benches than men...often, the woman has to lead in this regard. It's a good thing she does!
Never Too Busy Children need guidance, structure, and discipline, and balance, in order to survive healthily. Someone must see to it that it is lovingly enforced!
Then and Now She has lived long enough to see how far things have come, yet, there is so much that still needs to be done!
Greeting Place A strong sense of community is a wonderful thing!
Reaching Goals She has done her part! She has helped you get there, and honor is due her!
Lead The Way A mother has the greatest influence on her children for the good or for the bad! Where she leads, often, the child will follow!
Love Wrap Love is warm with security that grows confidence!
Fun She enhances her relationship with excursions that lend themselves to fun and laughter!
Memories Photo opt! Build memories!
1st Sunday The Sunday, the visiting choirs show up and everyone attends the service!
Carry The Load She teaches her children that sometimes in life you must carry, and bare the brunt of things.
Educate To be well rounded is to be well educated. This does not necessarily involve higher learning via institutions!
In The Middle A needful place for 'Mom' to be, or that significant guardian in a child's life. She provides the balance when there is conflict, or the shoulder to lean on for support. She gets in 'Your Business', in order to protect, and to guide.
Lean On Me No matter how many mistakes or mishaps, a mother will always be there for her children!
Goin' To Market Memories of how it use to be...the family that works together, stays together!
Go Higher Just as the height of a swing brings exhilaration and pride, so does reaching for higher heights!
The Giraffe A scene that can only be seen in one place...
