Growing up in Tarboro, NC, I was never much of a showoff. As a matter of fact, when I was a little girl, I was very quiet and even painfully shy. Often when I did do a little talkin', my Mama would ask me, "Now Linda, you aren't telling me a little story, are you?" And I would answer, "Oh no, Ma'am, I am telling you the truth." Well today when Mama asks me if I am telling a story, I say "Oh yes I am!" And my stories are no longer little, they are big. And I always embellish them.
Now as you know, an embellishment can be part fact and part fiction!
Happy Mother's Day Mama!
You are such a big part of my story.
And that's the truth.
