May 7, 2020 – Hartford, WI – My mother was the rock of our family. Having seven children, she was literally on lock down for more years than I can remember.

She didn’t have her driver’s license until she was in her 50’s, until I convinced her to sign up for behind-the-wheel classes.

It was then she achieved her full independence without having to rely on others.  Her homemaking skills of keeping a house; keeping us in clean clothes, baking, cooking, gardening you name it, kept our household intact through the good and bad.

 

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10.
