A Reader’s Tribute to Her Mother — 7 Comments

  1. Thanks for your comment, Becky.
    I think women of Mama’s generation didn’t go about talking about their dreams…they just got busy and made them come true! At least that was the case with MY Mama!

  2. What a beautiful poem, Virginia! I never had asked my mom what her dreams were, but she seem to had a very satisfy life. Even to this day living on her own for the most part except for needing someone to be with her these past 2 to 3 years for medical reasons she seems to be enjoying life.

  3. Thanks , Susan F.
    Both of Mama’s parents died before I was born, so I, too missed having grandparents. But with all my siblings, I didn’t realize what I was missing til I was grown.
    I still live on that ‘dirt farm’!
    Blessings to you,

  4. Thanks for sharing, Susan F. The poem tells the story of a strong woman like so many of our mothers.

  5. It’s a beautiful poem. My Mama is the daughter of a truck garden farmer (among other things). Her Dad died when she was a child leaving her Mom to raise the youngest of her 9 children alone. Mom always spoke lovingly of her Mom who passed away before I was born. This poem brings back many memories.

  6. Virginia, Thanks for sharing. Many will read your poem in the next few days. 🙂

  7. Thanks, Lyn. It looks good to have my poem in print. Hope reading it will renew fond memories of their Mamas for others . Looking forward to reading their comments.
