Vintage Family Photos Teach us Lessons of Strength, Endurance and Courage
1965. My mom (far left) was born and raised on the island of Raiatea (French Polynesia). She is pictured here with 4 of her 9 siblings and my grandparents in front of their home.
My grandparents got married without the support or consent of their families. They led a life of hard work on a farm, in very humble conditions.
Gosh, we really have it SO easy.
I’m grateful for the missionaries who not only changed their (and in turn mine) lives forever, but who were also able to document this.
With my grandmother and one of my aunties gone, these photos truly have become priceless. ~shared by @lobleebags
