In honor of the women who raised us, and the women who raised our mothers, we sat down to talk with our favorite Southern grandmothers on the joys of motherhood. Motherhood, especially in the South, is a revered role. Our mothers are remarkably patient and generous with their time, and have an uncanny way of telling us exactly what we need to hear, when we need to hear it. Southern Mamas are our inspiration, our motivation, and our celebration – so, it's only natural that we wanted to hear straight from the women that we love. These Southern mamas chatted about what they love most about being a mom, what their own mothers taught them, and the values that they wanted to pass down to their own kids. "Being a mom is the most wonderful thing that ever happened to me," said one of the grandmothers. We also found a common thread among many of the grandmothers: "I love that they have grandchildren!"
