Mom

No life insights or religion. Just my mom. Sorry. She passed away over six years ago. She was larger than life, on “stage” 24 hours a day, seven days a week. She was a TV spokesperson and, as she described it, a “weather girl.” I once told her that “weather girl” wasn’t the best way to describe what she did in these times but she didn’t care. “Weather girl” it was. I’m just glad we were able to digitize some of her TV work here.

Today is a day to honor moms and, most importantly, to surround them with love. Whether down here or “up there,” moms deserve and need our love. My mom had a job when fewer women worked but she always managed to get everything done and dole out the love. Love. It should define what a mom is about.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the moms out there! Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

She has now arrived in her Glocca Morra—heaven.

Here is the letter to my mom that I read as her eulogy… Continue reading
