On this last day of Black History Month and in anticipation of Women’s History Month starting tomorrow, I am taking a break from documenting our families’ history to talk about some bigger issues…
I am a rural raised, rural residing, heterosexual, higher educated, middle class, middle-aged, white women.
I was brought up in a household poor in income but rich in spirit. Despite growing up in a lower-bracket financially, I worked hard and studied hard, eventually earning two degrees.
I am married to my longtime love; together, we are raising caring, compassionate children. I am very spiritual, identifying as a Christian, and am grateful for the goodness God has given me.
All in all, I am what would be termed one of the “privileged” people, because I understand that, for the most part, the cards are stacked in my favor. Granted, I might not hold all the cards, but I have been dealt a pretty good hand.
