Two moms.One, a country girl who stayed rooted in her hometown to raise five wild kids, teaching each the importance of creativity, the strength of self reliance and the pride in a hard days work.Another, a city girl who was born in a refugee camp in Germany – (17 years later, at home in her new country, she would be named to Chicagos State Street Star Queens Court) and go on to bring up two Latvian+Mexican boys right – summers spent at a place called Vandavega. (Both moms with only one true love- the husbands they married when they were all teens). Much gratitude on this Mothers Day to a mom and mother in law who are a daily reminder of the sacrifices made so we could have a better life. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all mommas today
