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!
