Mom and Me 1952
Mom and her DadThank you for telling me stories of your childhood, of the gratitude you had for the little things in life. Being raised on a farm in rural North Dakota in the 30's and 40's, you didn't have much. An orange in a paper sack was a God-given gift at Christmas, a Model A to drive to town in, going to school in a horse-drawn school bus in freezing cold weather, your job at the movie theater, a best friend to play with, innocence and dreams.

Mom and Spocky at Thanksgiving 2008Thank you for teaching me about the things that are real and good in the world. Thank you for talking to me about God and spirituality and politics and people.
