08:34 am - To My Mama on Mother's Day
My mother would have been 88 this Mother's Day. I want to say, "thank you, Mama" for raising me in the very special way that you did. You had such a knack for guiding children. And such sympathy and kindness. You always used a soft voice. You quietly and firmly expected good behavior from your children, and you got it.
Me and my brother benefited from your loving ways. Love you, Mom!
Yes, that's me with the top-not! We were at my grandfather's cabin below the Kings Canyon National Forst. That's where I later caught my first fish ... and cried. I couldn't believe I'd purposely killed a creature. I was way too sensitive for fishing.
