It is Mother's Day for another couple of hours. It seems worthwhile to discuss my mother for a bit, so I will.
First of all, here's a recent (9 day old) picture of me with my mother.
This was taken at my mother's on April 29, 2011, right after an important family meeting. You will notice that I am wearing the other Bevboy's Blog t-shirt. This image is one I have not used very much. It shows me, my avatar, listening to an old crystal radio set.
Mom's had a tough year, losing her husband of 57 years and having to get by on her own. We have done all we could to help her. I will be down there again this weekend to help her out around the house. It has been a struggle, but we have made it so far.
My mother is a lot tougher than she might seem at first blush. She and Dad made a lot of sacrifices for us when we were growing up. I just feel it is my turn to try to return the favour.
Happy Mother's Day, Mommy. See you soon.
