The women of March
Raised by the women who are stronger than you know
A patchwork quilt of memory only women could have sewn
The threads were stitched by family hands, protected from the moth
By your mother and her mother, the weavers of your cloth.
— Mary Chapin Carpenter, Family Hands
March is Women’s History Month. And my family history is chock full of amazing women who joined our family … or who left it behind … in March. We celebrate the birthdays, we grieve the losses, and we just enjoy the faces.
Here they are … the weavers of our cloth.
