Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers reading Genea-Musings. The world could not do without you - you are absolutely needed, loved and respected. And never forgotten.

None of us would exist without our mothers, and their mothers, and theirs... ad infinitum. Isn't it amazing how all of this works? Thousands of generations ago women had babies, nourished them and nurtured them, probably just as we do today, except they didn't have indoor plumbing, automobiles or iPods.

I read the most beautiful post today by Terry Thornton on the Hill Country of Monroe County, Mississippi blog - it's titled "An Observance" but it's much more than that. It's a testimony to mothers and Mother's Day - read it and weep. The song "M-O-T-H-E-R" is pretty good too.

Thanks, Terry, for this post, and especially the poem and the song. We all get it, I think!
