When I was growing up I ended up going past my parents in education, (dad had 6th grade and mom had 8th grade). I ended up doing all kinds of things for them because of my high schooling and much later college (I was in my 30's with kids when I went to college). It made me grow up sometimes being the parent in the household. I ended up being the "strong" one and that carried over.

My parents owned a small business while I was growing up. I had to help stock product, clean up etc. It gave me a very good work ethic which has served me well. Because my parents often worked long hours I spend long hours on my own. which helped me become mature and independent at a young age.

I think your environment shapes everybody. Being southern and from a farm in childhood made me more mannerly.

Morning all my Spark friends,

Today's Question: How did the environment that you grew up in make you the person you are today?

I think that dealing with all I had to deal with my Father made me a much stronger person emotionally.


No body ever promised us a tomorrow.

Hate is a very strong word.

Think before we use it

Hugs DanLin

Have a wonderful day!!!!
