Standing in “high cotton,” under the big Texas sky –a beautiful soul– this sweet lady is just one of so many who grew my faith. If you see anything good in me it’s because people like Mona and Nelson modeled Jesus to me and hundreds more teenagers. We grew up in high cotton.
“Standing in high cotton” means your crop will be excellent, you’ve got it made. Growing up in Tulia, Texas, was growing up in high cotton. In my book Cruisin’ Through Life- Dip Street and Other Miracles, you’ll see how blessed I am by people like Mona .
