My beautiful mother
The cover photo above is my beautiful mother, Winifred Peterson, in her teens. I thought it would feel good to have her with me when I write. She was unflappable, very smart, and unfailingly supportive. When we were little, she loved playing with us. When we got older, she would have as much fun as we did completing projects for school or scouting. She cooked for junior choir practice every week for years at our church, and made all the choir robes. The list of things she did for others goes on and on. Although she encouraged us to talk, she really didn’t talk much herself. I never knew if she was Republican or Democrat in her thinking. She practiced Christianity, but never talked about it unless she was helping us spiritually to cope with something. Mom kept her feelings to herself. So, here she is, supporting me in my thinking, and quietly listening, just as always.
