The good example my mother set

    Mothers Day is just around the corner, which also means that a third of the year is gone. My, how time does fly. What can I write about Mother’s Day? Naturally I think of my mother at this time of the year more than other times. Many a time I think, what would Mother say about this or that? My mother guided us, loved us, and supported us in anything we did. She was a stay-at-home mom, so she was always there for us. As I remember, all my friends had stay-at-home moms. I could thank my mother for all she did for us, but maybe I should thank her more for what she didn’t do. She was a teacher in what she didn’t do. She didn’t drink, she didn’t smoke, and we never heard her cuss, and there was never an argument with Dad, at least that we children could hear.
