What Else She Said

She believed that if you were given the privilege of not having to work as a woman you really owed the community. You have to give back. You're not a free floater. You're not playing golf. You're doing, and my mother was a doer. I can't call her an activist, but I would definitely call her a doer. She had a heart and there were always people at the table and there wasn't a widow who didn't have a place at her table or who ever needed anything. And they were extremely charitable and my father still is. So, I grew up very nurtured.
