Ok, Mother's Day is not quite here yet but at this time I feel it appropriate to pay tribute to my dear momma!
Friday afternoon my Father picked me up from the hospital on his way up to the farm and in the car my mom had sent a huge pan of my favorite chicken broccoli casserole, rolls, mandarin orange jello and wonderful gut cookies! My Dad picked up about 12 loads of our laundry. My dad is very small, I am much taller than both parents. It was hilarious seeing him peering over the steering wheel of his Pontiac Vibe pulling out of the farm with the entire car weighted down with horrible laundry!
Meanwhile, my momma is working her full-time job down town. Comes home and the two of my parents crawl into the little car full of dirty laundry and go to the laundry mat just to get it all washed quickly. They were concerned so much laundry at once would kill their drain field J… They got the looks in the laundry mat! They just kept bringing in basket after basket of laundry… Then the hauled it all back into the baskets to take home to dry it.
My mom is a tough cookie. Did I tell she beat breast cancer almost 7 years ago (by the grace of God!) and while fighting cancer with chemo and radiation she worked full time! Only took 2 days off because of the sickness. She would have her treatments late Friday's so she didn't have to miss work and she would literally sleep all weekend!
Back to Saturday… Mom and Dad loaded the Vibe again and when they pulled in I could see 2 mice in the front seat and I really think the back of the car was sitting on the wheels loaded down with fresh laundry. My towels are so soft! She used some fabric softener on them. She brought another hot meal of a huge pan of lasagna, fresh salad, garlic bread and rice krispie treats! She saved me! Thank you mamma! I love you so much. Not for what you do, but for who you are. Thanks dad too! I hope you back isn't out from all the laundry!
