Wonderful post over there. I enjoyed reading it.
Thanks, Carrie. The thought of all those women who didn’t get credit for what they did really nauseates me!
I agree. I left a comment to that effect over on the other site, but I think it’s awaiting moderation.
Excellent post! 👏
Excellent contribution. Great choice of soundtrack by your daughter, Luanne
Thank you, Derrick!
I am thrilled when I pick up my own copy of “Kin Types” and think about the strong women in my family’s tree! There is just something to be said about how women have created, driven and built so much of the world through their innate nurturing and multiple tasking lives!! 👩⚕️👩⚖️👩🔧👩🔬👩🚀👩🚒
Wow, Robin, what a lovely way to put it: “women have created, driven and built so much of the world through their innate nurturing and multiple tasking lives!!” HEAR HEAR!!! So true! Thank you for saying it so beautifully! xoxo
So glad this comment spoke to you fully, Luanne! Thank you since this post really meant a lot to me. My Grandma and her mother came here in trying times, both full of hope. I think having immigrants for grandparents helped me listen to their stories more carefully. (I think so, anyway!) xoxo
Off to pick up three grandies now! 💞
Ah fun times with the grandkids! I think some people are more sensitive to the immigrant experiences of parents and grandparents. In fact that is something I have been thinking about lately. Enjoy your time!
Thanks very much! xo
