Mother's Day

This is my mom, my older brother John, and me, circa late 1966. Mom died in 1996 so I can't wish her a happy Mother's Day, but I think about her every day and often reflect that she did a pretty good job raising us, especially considering she had four kids between 1964 and 1967. I don't know how she did it without losing her mind -- that alone probably qualifies her for sainthood, let alone mother of the year.

I don't have anything profound to say about her. I just miss her and wish she were around to talk to.

BTW, I happen to think your Mom did and excellent job too. You're living proof.
