Today is my mother's 70th birthday. I love her so much, and I wish the miles between Texas and California didn't keep us apart---but they do. My mom and I don't keep in touch by texting, twittering, skyping, or whatever else is out there to make communication more "convenient." If we can't be together in person, we take care of it the "old-fashioned" way.
I absolutely love my mother-in-law, Leona. I wish I had know her mother, too. In honor of Leona's birthday today, my wife Cheryl posted some thoughts about the history of these two dear women. I never re-post whole blog entries, but I think this one is just too good not to share in toto. Thanks for writing this so well, Cheryl--you too are a terrific example of a woman walking wisely. --Phillip
