The Mighty One: Daily Prompt

The women of the family

When considering the word mighty, I thought long and hard about our struggles over the last few years. Well, maybe challenges would be a better word because I believe struggles are something we encounter alone whereas challenges are something that we work on together. So I thought, “what kept us together?  What made our difficulties turn into triumphs? How did our smudges go from something to be ashamed of and in need of cleansing to something that we could hold our heads up to and make a difference in the world by embracing them?” Would you like to know the what (or rather the who)? Do you want to know the mighty in our world?

Well, some would say it is me, Gigi, who speaks up and sounds off when my family is in danger but those people do not know about the woman behind the scenes, the true “Wind Beneath My Wings.” I have mentioned her briefly, but I would like to introduce you all to my mother, aka Nanny Batman, who is the fuel to the fire in every success story that I speak of. She is the rock that we stand on. She is the glue that holds us together. She is the “mighty” in this beautiful family who never falters in her love and support no matter what the challenge is before us.

A dynamic mother/daughter duo that has overcome obstacles and chosen to embrace our experiences rather than to change our view of ourselves. Lovingly labeled by Gigi or Mommy, the tone and messages in each post will reflect generational viewpoints and family continuances.
