  •  Mother’s Day was a special time for me when I was a child. From the time I first started to school, I remember using my hands to make things for people. I liked to make cards with a special meaning. Being from a large family of seven brothers and sisters, I often found it hard to recognize the individuality that I possessed. I still remember thinking about what I would write on each card. The message usually had something to do with thankfulness — either for something my mom did for me that no one else could do, or just thankfulness for the mom I had.  

  •  My daughter asked me to write a little something for The Oldham Era this week in honor of Mother’s Day. My daughter is Laura Hagan, one of the reporters for this paper.  I think she is very good at what she does , of course. That being said, please don’t judge me on what I am about to write.

  •  What could one say about a woman who has accomplished so much in a lifetime?  How could one describe her?  Mother, daughter, sister, friend, confidant and teacher – the list is endless.  I have lots of opportunities to look up to my mom.  She doesn’t consider herself a superwoman, but I do.  She does more in one day than most of us do in week.
