People Who Have Influenced My Life

My Mother

On Mother's Day, I wanted to honor my mother.  She is a wonderful mother and the best grandma.  

Growing up, she always made time to spend time with me.  I remember many hours in the car: running errands, driving to oboe lessons or the youth symphony, and countless hours going back and forth to church.  

My mom has set a great example of quiet service, playing the organ for years (40? 50?) every single Sunday, with her cute organ shoes.  As a teenager, I was extremely embarrassed by her orange, square toed shoes (with bows!), but they are probably fashionable again now.  In fact, I would probably wear them.

Happy Mother's Day!
