Hillbilly, Redneck, Hick, Country Bumpkin, and any thing else that falls into this category of Labeling... I dont like labeling. I rarely label people myself unless they earn that label good or bad. I try to teach my kids not to do that.. But in the same sense..
Heck Yah! I'm a Hillbilly!
Born and raised right here in Missouri 6 generations in the same county on my momma's side of the family 4th on my daddy's on account of some generations moving back to Illinois occasionally.. Even though we have moved into the next county we are less than 20 miles from where my family lived.
Me & my Daddy
long time ago
I ran barefoot all summer as a kid still like to be barefoot if at all possible. For a little while as a teenager I fought my hillbilly side and tried to suppress it till I had my kids. I was taught family values, making do with what I had and being content with my life. I love the small towns and the country roads. I like being able to see the stars and hear myself think. I like knowing my daughter's friends, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles.
I have even come to terms with the way I talk.. I say what fer? and Ain't Though teachers have corrected me for years. I don't say warsher anymore. I am as stubborn as a Missouri Mule when I am right! No one hopefully leaves my house hungry and I like drop in company as long as you don't judge the way things look at my house!...
So needless to say I am a hillbilly and Proud of it..
I married a total and complete Redneck... Our kids are Doomed!Lol Nah not really they will most likely be like their Momma and Daddy and be happy in the skin they are in!
Honestly people can label me all they want too. But The truth is God knows my heart and my family loves me.. Thats all that matters.......
My Great Grandpa and Pawpaw on my Mom's side.
My Mawmaw on my mom's side.
Of course she was married to my Pawpaw.
