My mom …

… is 67 years old today! šŸ™‚

Winona, McKenna Peak, Temple Butte

She is one of the most compassionate people I know. From a young age, inspired by a favorite uncle who was a doctor, she knew she wanted to be a nurse. An untold number of patients of all ages benefited from her calm approach to nursing them back to health. On the downside, when we were kids, my brother and I rarely got out of school for “illness”!

She’s the best cook/chef/baker I know. What’s my favorite food? Anything my mom makes! She’s a horsewoman, a dog lover, a gardener (and canner/preserver, following a long line of women in her family), a woman who sews, a planter and lover of trees, a chicken wrangler, the glue that binds our extended family, a farmer, a rancher, a mechanic’s helper, a veterinarian in a pinch, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a wife (and an Army wife at that), a mom, my best friend.

My mom is my role model, the woman I aspire to be.

I love you, Mom! Happy birthday! šŸ™‚
