Rebecca (Becky) was right when she said she did more around the house than her siblings. She started helping when she was a toddler and never stopped.
Months ago, when I started my column recordings I did one about Becky not wanting to go to school. She wasn’t afraid of school. Becky just didn’t want to leave me home. She said that I might need her help with Baby Rachel and toddler Russell–she was right, but I sent her off to school with a hug.
Too bad for Rebecca we never could afford to pay her what she was worth. But I sure appreciated her help through all the years….and even today.
