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!
Very nice tribute to your mom.ReplyDelete
Thank you -- she was a special lady!Delete
Happy Mother's Day. Your Mom sounds like such a beautiful woman. I loved how you described her.ReplyDelete
I am so frustrated with Verizon. We have five bars but our connection is so slow sometimes I just give up. I was hoping when all the snowbirds left AZ the connection would get better and I think it's actually gotten worse. But I still think it's the best we've got out there - for what it's worth.
Thank you -- she was a beautiful woman inside and out!Delete
We have never had much of a prob with Verizon. I think it's where we are. Our phone service also goes in and out, depending on where I am when using it.
Since you have 5 bars an amplifier would not help. The Verizon tower you're on is probably just saturated. It may vary throughout the day so maybe you can find a time when it's faster. Good luck and Happy Mother's Day!ReplyDelete
I'm sure you are right. I had already noticed it depends on the time of time I'm trying to use it. We've never had a prob with phone service either, but it goes in and out depending on where I am when using it. I'm sure we will adapt and overcome! Thanks.Delete
Your mother had to be a great person to raise someone as kind and thoughtful as you. Happy Mother's Day!ReplyDelete
Many of us are remembering our mothers fondly today, and missing them.ReplyDelete

Happy Mother's Day to you, Marilyn. Nice tribute to your mom. It is truly a blessing to have had a Mother who had a deep faith and instilled that into her children. I know, I had one too!!ReplyDelete
