When Grete attended a recent Quaker Retreat, participants were asked to write about “Where I’m From…” as an introduction. From that, came this:
I am from a line of strong-willed women, who only have two names.
I am Grete, born to Sallie, who was born to Grete, who was born to Sallie.
I have a daughter who is Sallie, who has a daughter who is Grete.
We are six generations of women who land on our feet.
