HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
We have arrived in Cherokee, North Carolina, for our Summer workamping experience. More to come on that later. Although our Verizon Aircard shows 5 bars, it is very slow -- maybe because of all the trees and today it is raining, which doesn't help. Perhaps an additional antennae would help -- if you have any suggestions, please let me know. There is WiFi here, but it only has 3 bars, so I'm not sure how that could be better -- besides it's not secure.
I just wanted to take a moment and wish all Mothers a Happy Mother's Day. Today I am remembering my Mother. Although she passed 15 years ago at the age of 71, I still think of her almost every day. I wanted to upload pictures, but the computer is just way too slow for that.
She was the only girl with two older brothers. I can only imagine the horror her parents felt when she met and married my dad and left them and the State of Arkansas for North Carolina. And undoubtedly, that is part of the reason she left my Dad and returned home with my older brother and me when I was only three months old.
There's a lot I remember about her, but the things that stand out the most to me today is her faith in God, her belief in prayer and her love for her family. She always said, "You've got to have faith" and "You need to pray" about any given situation.
So, today, I remember her with great fondness, respect and love.
Be safe out there and God bless you, one and all!
