Are We There Yet?


October is here!

We have enjoyed "listening" to Bessie and Sadie reminisce. Their stories are better than a dry textbook any old day. Although their life and family were not average, we have a good peek into what many African Americans overcame in order to possess the American dream.

Our family is not completely finished reading. We are close. But come Sunday dinner time, it will be a done deal. (Texas talk) Any one want to stop by and help clean a bucket or two of chitlins? (Arkansas heritage)

Remember to post pictures from around your table. Together we will be one big happy family.

As Jacqueline Woodson wrote, "We had a picnic this Sunday past. You should have been there." In this case, there is still time.

Who has inspired you? How?

We find ourselves being so inspired by Mama and Papa - there love story, strength, commitment to their family, foresight and pride. We are certainly challenged to incorporate more of that into our daily lives.

 Wow!  Perhaps the Delany sisters discovered the key to becoming centenarians  - healthy exercise, like yoga!   I think I should try it...since I do plan to live to be at least 100 years old!
