Surprise Sun Link Edition

February 26, 2011

I’ve been head-down with a number of big projects, professional and personal, and didn’t realize the web was vibrating with the theme of poverty this week.  And the sun keeps bursting out behind the clouds every so often.

Many thanks to:

Fabulously Broke, Funny About Money, Nicole and Maggie at Grumpy Rumblings, Shawanda at You Have More than You Think (so TRUE)  for linking to my post about Generational Poverty.


Daisy, one of the conversational instigators went on to share her story in two parts: 
My Life Part 1: From Rags to Riches .. Then back to Rags
My Life Part 2: Family Drama

Edit to add:
Fabulously Fru-Gal also shared her story in: Growing up Poor


Nurture wins this fight hands down, as FB shared in her hilarious recounting of motherly brainwashing:

When I was a little girl, my mother would feed me my favourite foods and say: When you grow up, don’t forget your mama.

That’s so Asian, so very immigrant or homeland Asian. Perhaps not exclusively so, but definitely inclusively so.


Sandy of Yes I am Cheap had responded to FB’s post: “Can you survive on an extreme budget and make tough choices?” with I Grew Up Poor And Survived.

That reminds me of some childhood memories I’d forgotten. Rather fond ones, actually.
