This delightful compendium of
treasured sayings from the recollections of members of Chief
John Ross Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American
Revolution, is a heartfelt testament to the never-ending love
of mothers, grandmothers, and other caring women of their families.
Astute, sometimes poignant, often
witty, these "motherisms" echo down through the years
to ladies who now find themselves unwittingly continuing the
tradition by using the same expressions with their own children.
The book is lavishly illustrated
with charming, whimsical vignettes that capture these cherished
memories and the mothers whose wit and wisdom this volume celebrates.
The book is divided into fourteen
chapters covering a broad range of topics, each addressing a
specific area of maternal expertise. Included are such titles
as "Investment Pointers" and "Time Management"
as well as a special section on "Vocabulary and Expressions."
There are "Questions To Ponder," the classic "And
If You Ask Why...," and a heart-warming chapter called "Making
Children everywhere, no matter
what their age, will resonate with these timeless quotations
from endearing women who will forever remain in our memory. It
is an adorable and enchanting read, and a must-have volume for
sharing with those you love.
