A Branch on an Ancestral Tree of Life

You are a branch on an ancestral tree of life. Mine is rooted by this beautiful woman, pictured here. The year was 1925; she was 17 years old. This was the year she married John Wesley Hall.

She gave birth to a child, who in turn gave others life. She had 12 children who forged foundations for their own families.

These are the tales of our ancestors, the family stories shared, and the lives we live.

This is Juliet Caldwell Hall, my caring, elegant, and phenomenal great-grandmother. My family matriarch. She is my black history.

So, I uplift her spirit and try to be the woman she would have wanted me to be. ~shared by @jandypants
