Happy Mothers Day!

Today is a special day in the United States, set aside for all of us to thank our maternal parent for everything she has done for us - she gave us birth, loved us, taught us, and did her best to mold us into a good person.  My sister and I think of ourselves as the second set of children that our Mother raised - her own Mother passed away when she was in her early teens, and she had a younger brother and sister to raise in her Mother's place.  Mom grew up during the Depression, and valued saving, honesty, knowledge, and laughter.  She knew what items cost and easily decided what could be afforded, and what couldn't.  It was simple black and white back then, and even as we were growing up, as our parents did not believe in buying on credit.  The only exception to that was in getting a mortgage for our house and when purchasing a car...
Bless all Mothers, every where in the world today!
