thank-you-350w-gratisography-1Written for Mother’s Day, but always appropriate.

Our Mom gave us the most wonderful gifts — a love of reading and a thirst for pragmatic knowledge.

I reminded her today of the time she and Dad decided a bathroom window needed to be replaced. Dad can rebuild your car’s engine, change the oil, and give it a wash and wax before you’ve even finished your coffee but he had never done renovations. In typical Mom fashion, we all piled into the car for a trip to the library. Why? To get a DIY book to help Dad. There was never any question as to whether it could be done… Mom’s motto is, if you can read it, you can do it.

Mom, I can’t tell you how many times in a year your life philosophy on learning and doing has gotten me out of a pickle. Actually, it’s also gotten me INTO a few interesting over-my-head situations, but what’s a little tension when there’s learning and achievement at the end?

Thanks, Mom. Love you.
