Welcome to my blog, Maid of Cotton. My name is Cindy Magee. I started this blog in July 2016 to share personal anecdotes and the humor that I see in everyday life. Little did I know that 3 months later, the oldest of my four children would pass away at the age of 29 years old. I share some of the challenges of facing life’s adversities with hope, faith, and peace. I also share lessons in life that I have learned that many of you may relate to.
It is my intention to write in a real and honest voice so that you and I can connect in a personal way. I hope I can make you laugh a little bit, too. It is my hope that as I share my experiences that something I write will resonate and encourage you in your own life.
I hope that you will imagine yourself sitting with me over a cup of coffee as if you have met a friend.
I live in Jackson, Tennessee. I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee. I am married to my husband of 31 years and together we have four children, three boys and a girl. Two of our sons are married and our daughter is in college.
The name Maid of Cotton was inspired by my parents growing up on cotton farms in the Arkansas delta.
When I am not writing and taking care of my family, I enjoy reading anything and everything. I enjoy watching interior decorating shows. I sometimes get up and do a little decorating in my own home. I love to find humor in ordinary life. I truly feel laughter and a hug can sometimes be the best medicine.
I love making friends!
