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!


  1. Happy Tuesday to you too! Thanks for stopping by, nice to "meet" you!

  2. I agree. I'm thankful every day not only to the ones I knew and loved, but to the ones I didn't. They are all a part of my life and my heart. Lovely to meet you. I dropped by for the tea party, and I'm so glad I did.

  3. AMEN sister! And yes, we can definitely be besties!

  4. Hello, Ms. Kate! I tagged you for an award today!! Come snatch it up! xoxo

  5. Thanks so much for reminding me of those from my past. They contribute to who I am and are always in my heart. We are blessed to be "southern" and to pass those memories on to our children.


Lay it on me y'all!
