This is the story of a 60 year old that I know. It’s a true story. The names have been changed for privacy issues.
Elizabeth married young, at 20.
She married her high school boyfriend.
She became a house wife.
She cooks, she cleans, she organizes everything around the house.
She had kids, 3: 2 boys and 1 girl.
She raised them all
She devoted quite a lot to their education
and caring for them.
Even when they were already raised
it was difficult for her to see that
and let them go.
While still recently married, money was scarce.
Only her husband worked.
She decided to try something and do things herself.
She took a sewing course
and starting making her kids clothes
After trying, reading magazines,
trying more, sewing and re sewing
She got a lot of experience
She even made her daughter’s weeding dress
But she never felt confident enough
as to go out and sell the beautiful pieces she makes.
