Women's Project - Telling stories about great woman 

Those of you who follow my series -Women I Might Have Known, know what an inspiration all of the women in my life have been to me. I spend countless hours studying our old photo albums so that I might find a picture and story that wants to be told.

Janet

April 17

Janet is my sister in law. She is a wife, mother and grandmother of two sweet girls.  I didn’t appreciate her when we were younger. I guess we were all busy growing up, but I’ve known her for more than 40 years and I have come to value her as the connective thread that keeps our family together. She is the record keeper. She knows all of the birthdates, who is sick and who needs help. I would bet she knows all of her elder neighbor and regularly checks on them too.  Janet pays attention. In the most unassuming way, she has completely endeared herself to my family. Janet always sewed beautifully (I paid attention to that!), and she crochets wonderful afghans that she gives for special occasions. If our lives are measured by the people we have touched then Janet’s cup is overflowing.
