"I come from a family of people who know how to figure it out and make it work."~ Meryl Johnson
"There is something unique, even spiritual, when you have a grandmother, daughter and grandchild under one roof."~ Curtis Burke
For most people, Mother's Day is a day of celebrating and loving on our mothers and mother figures in our lives. Not so much for Meryl Johnson, our guest in this episode. For her, it is a reminder of the two women that were so integral to her life for many years, but are now not part of it anymore. It is a painful reminder of how terribly she misses them.
Meryl has worked at Warner Brothers Entertainment Group, Country Music Association (CMA) and as Vice President of digital marketing at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.
In this episode, Meryl shares about her grandmother and mother's unique relationship, her experience living with both of them since she was 12, and how their love and mutual respect for each other impacted Meryl's life.
The impact her mother and grandmother have imprinted on her life will never change, only guiding her as she now creates her own family legacy.
