In the oldest picture I have of my mother and me together, we are enjoying my 5th birthday party. The table is decorated with a western theme, and mom has a toy six-shooter, holstered western-style, hanging from her hip.
So began a 1999 newspaper column I wrote honoring mom. She had it framed, and it was still on her wall two years ago when she went to be with Jesus. I share it with you today both to honor her and moms in general. Enjoy.
