Thanks Mom

Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation by Cokie Roberts has been patiently waiting on my to be read pile for years. In honor of all mothers, I’m happy to report I finally read it!

This collection of stories about a variety of historical women who walked with and influenced other great individuals was interesting. I learned many tidbits of information previously unknown and that’s a good thing! Although I found this book slow moving and not fully what I anticipated, it honors women who, like countless others, rose to the challenging roles placed before them and gave their all; women like Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Mercy Otis Warren, Deborah Read Franklin, Eliza Pinckney, Catherine Littlefield Green, and Esther DeBerdt Reed. These women and others may not be familiar, but they made a difference, made sacrifices, and ultimately left their handprints on our nation in its early years.

I recommend this book in honor of the mothers who went before us, the mothers of today, and future mothers. Whether great or small, what you do, and the love you give, matters more than you know. Happy Mother’s Day.
