Happy Mother’s Day!

     This is to all you mothers…..Happy, Happy Day! Thanks! You are awesome!

     A long time ago (1959) in a land far away (Birmingham, AL) a single mother gave birth to a 5 lb infant at the Salvation Army Shelter. No relatives or friends were there. The father had split. The grandma had put the girl out of the house. So, a baby was born with nothing but a drawer (in a chest) for a basinet…coulda been worse, I guess. It wasn’t the back seat of a greyhound bus!

     I think my mother did her best with what she had to work with. I appreciate that! The times were not kind to single mothers. But she chose to keep me….she chose life! what a long, strange trip it’s been!

     Long ago in another strange land a young girl gave birth in a stable….He turned out pretty good too!

     Come back this week for a guess article by a single mom, Monica. ….check out the coming events….and…..

Happy Mother’s Day
