MOTHERS, ALL

I honor the mothers that are in my family today.  When I look at their faces from so long ago, more than anything else, I see strength.  And, perhaps that is what has been passed on to me through the years.  These are women who raised their families with much less than I have.  They lived through dark days.  And, yet…their children call them ‘blessed’.

My great-grandmother…Della Delenia Tew

My maternal grandmother…Annie Tew Merritt

My mother, Eloise Merritt Townsend, with me…

…and with Joy and I…

My paternal grandmother, Lillian Esther Hallman Townsend…

My Mother-in-love, Elizabeth Meadows Owens…

Don’s paternal  grandmother, Iola Owens…

And the newest mother in my family, my daughter-in-love, Suzanne Horn Owens and Baby Levi…

These are the women who have molded our family through generations.  I come from a strong heritage of women who loved the Lord, loved their families, and loved others in their communities.  I am blessed.

My beautiful Mom…I miss you every day…

To my boys…thank you for making motherhood an adventure…I love you all…

In case you don’t recognize me…this is my portrait, drawn by Ian years ago.
