A Mother’s Life and Love

0

When Indiana is abloom in spring, my thoughts always turn to my late mother, Ruth. She was 84 when she passed away in April 2005. Her birthday fell in early May, very close to Mother’s Day. My sisters and I often combined her birthday and Mother’s Day celebrations when we were kids. To her credit, she never complained about us killing two birds with one stone. Mothers are like that. They give much of themselves to their children, and don’t expect a lot in return. (For more on that, read “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein.)
