Memorial Day!

Today we remember all of those who fell during war. Those who are brave and willing to stand in the service of this country.

The people we carry.

I have my mother's hands, my grandmothers feet and I look my like my youngest aunt.
I quote my grandmother often. If I need guidance I pick up the phone and call one of my many aunts.
My life is shaped by the actions of my family, my friends and myself.
My daughters frequently remind me of my mother. They are determined and feisty.

I get my drive, my ability to dream, my determination from both my father and my mother.
It's trickled down through our family.
My grandmother's determination that all of her children would have an education, that they would always present themselves appropriately.

I hope that in the end I have the strength of my mother's hands, the perseverance of my grandmother's feet and the grace of my aunts.
