Meet Rebekah (L), Ally (M) and Shae (R) – Family Love
One of the first questions I asked Rebekah was, "If you could describe yourself in three words, what would they be?" After a moment of thought, she replied, “strong, ambitious and bubbly”. In chatting with her for about an hour and a half, I agree!
After growing up in Lower Harmony, Rebekah now lives in the Truro area. In between that time she did a bit of travelling. She shared that she moved to Massachusetts when she was 18, then to Las Vegas when she was 25, and has been back in Truro for about 11 years. I wondered if she missed anything about Truro while she lived away, so I asked, “Is there one thing about Truro that you missed that you really appreciate since you moved back?” She quickly replied, “I definitely missed the slower lifestyle of Truro. But mostly it was my family. I have 2 brothers and 2 step sisters and 11 nieces and nephews. It is nice to have them all close.”
Rebekah has two beautiful daughters that she was happy to tell me about, “I have an 8 year old and a 21 year old” she shared. “Wow, that is quite the age difference” I remarked. She laughed and replied, “Yes, a Big age difference! Despite the age difference though, they are very close.” She continued, “But my oldest daughter is my saving grace right now. She watches my youngest daughter while I am at work.” I could feel the sense of thankfulness as she typed.
Before we ended our conversation, I asked her if she had any pets. She replied, “I have one cat and my oldest daughter has a cat that lives with me” she giggled. “Funny, I’m allergic to cats but the kids love them. It’s hard to find housing with a dog, so cats it is.”
Thank you so much Rebekah for taking time to chat with me. It was certainly a pleasure and I look forward to keeping in touch. I will end with this fitting quote by Cicero, “A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue but the parent of all other virtues.” Stay strong, Stay ambitious, Stay bubbly and Stay well
