What's in a name?
History passed down through the generations...
My mother: gave me a strong sense of family, high standards, work ethic, set an example of what a wife should be and was consistently dependable in times of trouble. Her house is always the place you can come home to.
Gosh, I hope I have passed on the same.
Like Peter...the Rock. I know she picked up each family strong point and added some of her own. Always brings God into Monday and trusts each day to Him.
Still learning what she is going to be, still growing her stock that is already paying dividends. This magnificent, statuesque, beauty, will hopefully carry on the love, dignity and character of the mothers before her and raise them to even greater levels.
We have a mother-daughter lineage in common and a name, untarnished, that has been passed down...
but it took a lot more to make us who we are:
Grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts, sisters, brothers, children and other grandchildren whose names (except for the Gwen part) could just as easily fit into the list above, not to mention our faith and a multitude of friends.
Upon reflection, I shall always strive to be the best:
...Gwen that I can be. :)
