In 2002, I asked my mother, who is currently almost 89-years-old, some questions. For several years, I have hesitated to share any of what my mother said to me. Even though my mother had an austere childhood during the Depression; and although for years, she essentially had no home–she has survived as a very proud person.
Yesterday, I re-read what my mother said 13 years ago; and although some of her childhood was brutal, she does not whine. Rather, she always seems to reflect from a positive side.
What My Mother Said is a series of posts that are mostly written, using my mother’s actual words.
