So That's Where I Get It From

March 21 – Women’s History Month – Fearless Females

I’ve not been able to add posts for this series (or for anything else) over the last few days as I have been having internet connection problems again!!  Hopefully things are improved now and so, fingers crossed, I can catch up with this series.

March 21 – Describe a tender moment one of your female ancestors shared with you or another family member.

I find it difficult to answer this because there have been many tender moments over the years between me and my family members, so it’s hard to know which “moment” to pick!

I was going through some old photos and came across the one I shall show here of my dear late Aunt Margaret Sinclair (1916 – 1999) with her younger sister Jean (my dear Mum).  I felt it shows a tender moment between two sisters.

I think this shows both tenderness and protection as my Aunt Margaret has a steadying hand around my Mum and it also shows a wonderful closeness between them.
