Where we come from

miss kathy callahan rose The following is an excerpt from “What Southern Women Know About Faith” by Rhoda Rich. It really spoke to me and I wanted to share!

“To Southerners, a sense of place is enormously important and often defines who we are…for it tells from where we come. Returning to that familiar place on a regular basis tucks us securely into the bosom of our lineage and reminds us of those who have come before us and built the foundations of our families.”


I don’t know about y’all, but I am ever-so thankful for the ones who came before me and I feel awfully blessed to have been loved by them. Being southern is more than just funny sayin’s or curious behaviors or even delicious food…it goes much deeper than that.

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is going well!
