It is past time that I update this post of 'more about me'. It is a LONG story (as are my birthyears) but I will try to shorten the stories (as I do with my birthyears).
I am of the 'Babyboomer' era. I was raised by a very strict Grandmother, who lived on a 'fixed' income. I remember thinking, (when she would tell me that) if it's fixed, why does it seem like it is always 'broke'? She also protected me like a fierce Momma Bear. So, I was knieve about a lot of things for many years. Fearful of many things as well. Yet, I never really felt 'Poor'! I did get plenty of hugs, butterfly kisses, and snuggles anytime I wanted them....or so it seemed.
It is the things that my Grandmother taught me about life, that has helped me to be the strong, resourceful person I am today. If I could change anything, it would be the little voice that sat on my shoulder telling me everytime I felt deprived, that "When I have children" they were going to have so much MORE than I did!
Many of us 'BabyBoomers' felt that way. We are now having to deal with the results of our excesses. Our pampered children who don't know how to live with less and they want even 'More".....for Their children...OUR Grandchildren.
To be continued......
