Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is a little bittersweet for me. I did not know my mother until I was 17 years old, and even though I did get the chance to get to know her a little before she died a few years later, it was more of a friendship than a mother/son bond. I did, however, get to see a lot of great mothers in action. My sister-in-law Cindy, was the closest thing I had to a real mother, and even though she didn’t plan on being a
mother to a smart-mouthed little kid after a few weeks of being married, she did a great job of it for several years. While at the Baptist Children’s home, my house mother, Mrs. Lauffer, was also a great mother figure to dozens of kids over the years, including me. So while some of us didn’t have a “traditional” mother, we did have women who were just as special in our lives, so Happy Mother’s day to ALL the mothers out there (and especially to my daughter’s mother, who I could not be raising a very special girl without).
