Harriet Tubman

book 001 Harriet Tubman with a few people she helped during the Civil War. She is to the far left with a pan in her hands.

So many books I have not read and this was one of  them. I picked it up at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago for 25 cents. Just started reading it and if not for things I must do, I would read it straight through without stopping.

I am really enjoying the way this is written, It is a simple book, it reads very easy.

This picture was taken during the Civil War. Harriet is to the far left with the pan in her hand.

I love history, the good and the bad of it. There are things we should know so we can understand other cultures. When I was a little girl, I was afraid of people of color. And as I grew up I continued to not understand who they were. Books like this one tell a story, they give you a light into a world we have never know.

In these times, it would be good to know more about the people we fear. To understand why they are the people they are, and where all the anger came from….just a thought.

Have a really special weekend!

A Day filled with Love….

 All My children and 6 of my 7 grandchildren came to be with me on Mother’s Day and some really lovely gifts. Trevor & Terri got me Lavender for my back door planter. Cory  & Kristie and my 5 grandkids got me a beautiful leather Journal, Godiva chocolate..yummy! And a gift card to B& N. Jenny, Doug and Summit got me the planter  with a lovely plant for my porch pictured…it is so pretty. It was a very good day. And today my best friend Mary called and we laugh and shared our day along with everything we could think of. Life is good.DSCN1253Click on photos to see better.Mary and Mary 001 Mary and Mary 1962
