KIND OF A MEME FOR MARCH

The idea is that you post something everyday.
It can be funny or stupid, long or short, whatever you like…

Today is International Women’s Day…
Not a day that is celebrated a lot here in Denmark. I think women have had it kind of easy here for the past many years, so we don´t need to fight that much to get what we want….

But anyway; I will tell you about a woman that fought for what she wanted, and still does in her own way..

MY MUM.

She is born in 1950, and had a normally childhood with a mum and a dad and a younger sister (Also known to you as Crazy!Aunt)

(What you need to know here is, that Mums Mum had an older aunt, that was the stepmother of my Dads Dad, so there was a little family between them)

When she was 13 she met my Dad for the first time at a party.
He was 19 and didn´t pay her much attention. But the next day at school, she told her best friend Elsie; “Yesterday I met the man I´m going to marry:”

So she started worming her way into my Dads life, and one day when she was 15 my Dad saw her;)
They got engaged when Mum was 16 and Dad 22, got married when she was 18 and had me when she was 19.

She was determent to get him and she did. Maybe that is just a small fight in the big scheme, but I love it and I am proud of her and happy that she got what she wanted in my Dad.
They had known each other for 47 years, until my Dad died in 2010...
