About the Author
Dorothy Robinson is an 81 year old great grandmother. She has spent the better part of her life mothering, mentoring, and working with young people. In her younger years as a mother, much of her time was dedicated to raising her children while working in the corporate world. She spent over thirty years working with a diverse group of people from all parts of the world. She performed numerous jobs that placed her in the position to observe individuals from all cultures. Through her observations and experiences she learned so much about relationships and how people think and relate to their life’s experiences. She spent many years listening and learning mostly from the black women she encountered daily. She focused on their stories more because she could relate to their experiences. Over the years, she has recorded stories told by black women, the young and the elders of several generations. These stories were ingrained in her brain and that is the primary reason for writing this book. Eighty-one years of living on this planet has taught her many life lessons, some good and others were not so good. Her father and mother were sharecroppers who moved like nomads from one farm to another. She learned the meaning of hard work as a child by working in the fields and helping her mother raise her brothers and sisters. She felt the weight of that responsibility her entire life. Even though her life was extremely difficult, it shaped the person she has become. At this stage in her life, she has no regrets. The difficulties of her life gave her a deep appreciation for the rewards of hard work, sacrifices, and endurance. These are considered the sundown years of one’s life but she feels more vibrant, healthy, and happy than she was in her youth. She is grateful to God for His mercy and His many blessings.
