I'm going to celebrate my mom.
Born on the reservation, adopted out to a white family, graduated HS in 1950, and started working full time. (She worked and made money from the time she was 10. Sold cottage cheese made from her dad's cow's milk.
My dad had been disabled and she was the breadwinner. It suited her.
Complicated daughter relationship, but she fiercely supported us.
She's waning now. Every time I see her, I know it might be the last time she knows who I am.
These women who broke ground may be your mom, grandma, aunt.
My mom was born 11 years after women were granted the vote in the US. Her rights and freedoms evolved. Ours are regressing.
Do your mom, grandma and aunt proud.
#ElectWomen (my sisters agree she would say this)
