๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒƒ๐Ÿข๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒˆ “There’s A Land That I Heard Of” โ˜•๏ธI had the opportunity to stay in this hotel near the United Nations when I travel to New York ๐ŸŒƒ I couldn’t help but look out the window I notice of you and the first thing I thought about was my grandmother who was raised and worked in a ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บpoor country most of her life. Like many poor people in Third World countries she had a poor relationship with money and a loyal attitude towards religion ๐Ÿ˜‡My grandmother worked in pre-Fidel Castro Cuba and during that time when women of color ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฟcould not find employment and any other profession outside of domestic duties. During this time she worked in 44 houses๐Ÿ  for the rich ๐Ÿ’ต people in Cuba.๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ My grandmother never was able to even imagine this kind of you outside of the postcard although she worked more in her lifetime than most people do in 10 lifetimes. One of the things that my grandmother liked was to look at the lights in traffic something about watching ๐Ÿ’กlights from cars๐Ÿšจ made her happy, ๐Ÿ˜ปalso the lights of tall buildings. Something about technology progress and people going somewhere. โœˆ๏ธ My grandmother would’ve been 91 October 5 but she passed away four years ago now The richness that she was not able to provide financially๐Ÿ’ต she was able to provide with her work ethic and manners. โ˜•
