I recently read a book called Generous Women by Earl Hamner, writer of The Waltons television show and more…and I loved what he wrote. He recounted all the women in his life that had shaped him in some way to become a successful man. I loved reading each chapter on a different woman, including aunts, teachers, his own mother, and more that maybe only said one thing or demonstrated one act of character, but he noticed. And that compilation of notices piled up high to give him footings on which to stand tall in the world, as he matured.
So for Mother’s Day this month, I thought I’d share my own list of women, amazing moms that have shaped my life. I’m hoping it will prompt you to look around, reflect, and even give thanks for and to the moms you’ve encountered that made your life better.ountered that made your life better.
