It wouldn't be a mother's day tribute if I didn't give tribute to my mother's mother.....Mary Bessie Mae Harrison Wickliffe.
What it must have taken to give birth to 6 children & THEN a set a twins!
I couldn't even imagine! Even in the 50's & 60's, this still must have been a big job.
She was a stay at home mom, but she did work as a nurses aid after she & my grandfather divorced.
My grandmother grew up on a farm, so she knew how to care for animals & make clothes & cook. (This must have come in handy with 10 mouths to feed daily.)
I admire the mother she must have been & hope to be just like her.
