Mother’s Day is on Sunday (you’re welcome), so I thought it might be fun to take a look at some seriously great moms.
I mean, check out Abigail Adams. Raised and educated five kids (including a future president), single-handedly ran the family’s farm and was active in the equal rights movement and the abolition of slavery.
Mary Ball Washington managed a 600-acre farm plantation and raised six kids and the very first president of the United States.
Did you know, Mary Anne Boehner raised 12 (12!) kids and slept on a pullout couch in the family’s two-bedroom home?
Note only was Barbara Bush First Lady, championing several noble causes, she raised a President and a governor.
Oriales Garcia Rubio grew up in Cuba, sharing the one-room house with a dirt floor with her family of nine. She moved to the United States with humble beginnings and raised a successful family, even after her husband died.
Of course we know Leonore Romney as the wife of the governor of Michigan and mom to a presidential candidate, turned U.S. Senator. But the actress and mom of four ran for the U.S. Senate in her own right in 1970.
Who’s your favorite political mom?
Thanks to all the great moms out there who are getting it done every single day, not just on Mother’s Day.
Thanks for checking in,
