My Mom, the Cowgirl
Although the quality of the photo is poor, you can still see the first woman on the right is my Mom many years ago. She was a cowgirl for the day, riding on the back of a convertible in the local small-town Texas parade.
This morning as I was looking over the list of errands for the day, my mind drifted over to my Mom. She is the January Birthday Girl in our family.
My Mom, not surprising to our family, is still keeping up the many chores of her home, cooking the meals and in charge of the monies and budget. She also likes to put together 1,000 piece puzzles and play dominoes.
She did give up driving a couple of years ago. But, she can still sit in the front seat and give the driver "directions".
Are you asking yourself, "What is so unusual about these qualities in a mother?"
Well, my Mom celebrated her 89th birthday this month......and baked her own birthday cake for her family to enjoy! I guess in some ways, my Mom is still a cowgirl.
Happy Birthday Mom!
