Learning through adversity

Woman’s Work detail Copyright 2007 by R.A. Robbins

“There is no education like adversity.”

Benjamin Disraeli

Today’s photo is a small section of an art piece I call “Woman’s Work.”  This is a tribute to the women in both of our families — mothers, grandmothers, aunts.  It incorporated embroidery salvaged from damaged napkins, tablecloths, and pillowcases hand made by some of these women.

These women all lived through adversity.   Bob and I can both be grateful to them for teaching us how to survive in tough times.  Some of these skills are being put to use now as we live through a pandemic.

So during this time of great uncertainty let us remember our family members who lived through WWII, the Great Depression and other times of great adversity.  They learned much from these experiences. What did you learn from them that is serving you well now?
