Happy Mom’s day to Hazel Bleecker Lael, my mama. See you Sunday morning!
There are many reasons why I love my mother, and here are just a few of them:
She was always there for me.
She passed on her love of books and her facility with the written word.
She took me to Sunday school.
She covered for me when I would otherwise have been in big trouble with Dad.
She can make me laugh like no one else.
She never said ‘go outside and play’ when I was scribbling down some story in a spiral notebook.
She pretended she didn’t know I was faking it when I stayed home from school to see Michael Landon on “Hollywood Squares”.
She did without so many things so her children could have extras.
And that doesn’t even scratch the surface.
I love you, Mom. Thanks for being you.
