It's Thankful Thursday which means tomorrow is Friday but who cares cause from now until late August, everyday will feel like Friday and for that, I'm EXTREMELY thankful! WOO HOO!!
I was working on a sample for a Make-It-Take-It and as I completed the tag I realized that growing up during the turbulent era of the 60s and early 70's is something else I'm thankful for. Although I didn't know it then, I was learning valuable life lessons. I was being shaped. And, I'm very surprised to say, it took me until recently to see it but like the saying goes, better late than never. I was raised in a predominately African-American neighborhood and at school I was only one of a few Mexican-American students. In high school, the numbers changed to near equal numbers of Latinos, African-Americans, Asians and Anglos (wow, look at all those "A's!" HA!). And we were all female! I'm realizing that the experiences I had of being exposed to young people of various cultures purged me of potential stereotypical assumptions people sometimes make about other groups. And it's for those experiences that I'm thankful for. In fact, I'm even more thankful for those than of having to go back to school in late August. Life lessons. You never know when one is gonna bite you in the ass. LOL!
