You say or do something and you wonder, “Where did that come from?” only to remember your mother said and did that and suddenly you realize you have become your mother. In a PowerPoint presentation, audience members will be reminded of common expressions used by our mothers, along with humorous stories that help us understand the powerful gene pool from which we came. The presentation also includes inspiring quotes attributed to notable famous women of all generations.
