Today I am wrestling with a topic. I scanned the lists of one liners for others' posts this morning. I noticed Tara's comments about multitasking and she mentioned Women's History Month. And so thanks, Tara for helping me get an idea.
A story told to me by my mother...
One day I came home from the second grade in tears. My mom asked what was wrong and I told her that Abigail Adams wasn't able to see her son, John Quincy Adams, become president because she had died before he was elected. My mom was relieved but a little confused by my reaction but for me, that started an interest in the life of Abigail Adams.
Since that day, I read any book that is published about her or her husband, John Adams. I love to read the letters she wrote to her husband and various famous Americans such as Thomas Jefferson. I admire her intelligence, her opinions, her ability to run a farm, and raise a family. And isn't it wonderful? My interest started one day when a teacher shared with her second graders about a famous woman, Abigail Adams.
