My Mother Raised Me to Be Strong, Courageous and Confident

When Mom dressed us, fed us, took care of everything…remember?! In this old family photo, I’m grateful for Mom dressing me in the height of 70’s fashion & not Garanimals. 馃檪

My single mother worked two, sometimes three, jobs but I never, ever knew we were money-poor, as we were so rich in love.

Looking at family photos from my childhood makes me remember the security I most definitely felt, but mostly the joy of being a kid, loved and taken care of, not a worry in the world.

Oh, and I recall the ritual of having my “hair done.” I always preferred pigtails. ~shared by @modernheirloom
