Thursday photo prompt: Rooted #writephoto

My grandfather had a Spanish heritage
Heritage from my grandmother was her long hair
Hair so brown and wavy like a native Filipina
Filipina I am I swear

My mother was one of seven
Seven children all different
Different careers, different lives
Lives all so current

My father’s father died when he was young
Young and alone but he was clever
Clever to be given some scholarship
Scholarship and I was proud of him forever

Whatever I achieve and wherever I am
Am always very grateful
Grateful for the roots of my family
Love them and I’m ever so faithful*
