Bloggers Meet and Greet May 2018- Mother's Day

Mother's Day is May 13, 2018.  Think about this.  Have there been certain woman in your life that really influenced you? Maybe a friend or relative helped to mold you. I would like to talk about 3 important women that influenced my life.

My grandmother- Mary Grant

1. My mother

I did not know a lot about my mother. I lived with my father and grandmother, but there are a few things that I do remember about her. My mother was very out spoken. She seemed almost fearless. I know that if it were not for God, my mother and father I would not be here today. My mother was a fast talker. I remember many times that she would out talk my father. When I lived with my father he would always take me to visit my mother. I told him one day, “Why do I need to visit my mother, I have you.?” I was about 3 or 4 years old. He looked at me and said in a soft voice, “You are going to see your mother.” That was the end of that discussion.

2. My grandmother

I remember her very well. She was a short petite, feisty woman. She also was a talker. She said what she meant and meant what she said. I called her mama. I did not understand why my father had to go to work. I would ask him to stay home with me. He would try and explain that he had a boss and needed to go to work. I recall her and my mother did not seem to get along very well. Whenever, they saw each other it would end in an argument. Then there were 2 strong-will women arguing. Neither one of them seemingly backing down. My grandmother nor my father attended church, but they did allow me to attend with my neighbors. I loved church. I thought it was so exciting. My grandmother would walk me to school. I started at age 4. The school was about 4 to 5 blocks. I told my grandmother, “ I know my way, you do not have to walk me to school.” She was protective of me and walked me to school anyway. We had a strawberry patch in the backyard. She would let me go into the back and pick fresh strawberries. I loved to do that. The strawberries seemed so sweet.

3. Finally there was my Aunt Mary

My grandmother and I went to live with my aunt and uncle when I was older. There were so many children in the neighborhood that there was never a dull moment. I recall that I used to visit before coming to live with my aunt and uncle. She took me to get my picture taken. I was afraid she would leave me, but she stood right there. My aunt always talk to me about everything. She talked a lot about life. She taught me to crochet and to dust and sweep the floors. I would love dusting, because she had this spray that I sprayed on the furniture and it smelled so good. I loved to dust.
