I’m an insurance agent, married, and mother to 2 girls who became women when I wasn’t looking. I engage in the struggles of daily life in a small town in Illinois.
I have a large, extended family to whom I’ve been writing since I moved away from home 30 years ago. This blog arose out of my letters to them, and at their prompting.
“You shouldn’t be sending all this stuff to us” they said, meaning JUST to them alone.
“We’ve been on the receiving end of your ramblings for YEARS, and it’s not fair.” Not fair to others who didn’t get to share my thoughts, is what they meant.
“We INSIST that you stop emailing us” they said, thereby giving the impression that they didn’t want to hear from me. Those big kidders. Ha ha ha! But it doesn’t take Einstein to see the obvious implication that they don’t want me to hide my light under a bushel basket. That I should share it (the light, not the bushel basket) with the world!
These are the Everyday musings from Everywoman’s perspective. Everywoman would be me.
I’d love to hear what you think.
