My mom is a force of nature. She’s almost 87, and is as strong, fit, and funny as if she were 67. She thinks nothing of sump pumping her back yard during a Whitehorse spring thaw, whipping up a rhubarb pie or a batch of buns, taking care of my Dad for the last 63 years, or taking on just about anything else life throws at her. And she remains upbeat, positive, and looks for the good in people. Unless they don’t deserve it. I’ve got a lot to live up to. Happy Mom’s Day, Mom!
