Tell those stories

Momma-2-Momma shares the importance of telling the next generation about their ancestors.
I would not know any of these stories if my parents and grandparents did not have the good sense to tell them. But since they did, I do. I have a heritage, a geneaology filled with names and dates, but much more importantly, a history filled with real flesh-and-blood people who carried deep sadnesses and dreams, who loved and sorrowed, who laughed, who killed themselves slowly. And I am so grateful.
