My recent stay in the hospital and subsequent convalescence here at Rancho Yesteryear only go to demonstrate how essential a role mothers play in our lives. My mother has been the absolute salt of the earth—staying on here and cooking, cleaning, etc. during my recuperation…duties that I can never hope to repay her but remain eternally grateful for all the same.
I just wish I had a more up-to-date photo for this post—her granddaughter is a bit older now. Oh, well…happy Mother’s Day, Mom—I love you so much.
