Happy Mother’s Day!

About a week ago, a question was posted on the Hearing Journey about mothers.

    As Mother’s Day approaches, I was thinking about my mother and I thought it might be fun if we shared some memories about our mothers and grandmothers. What is/ was your mother like? What made her special to you? Did she give you any advice for life that has served you well?

And here is my answer…

    Mine, for mine…especially my mother since my dad died when I was 15 was an inspiration and still is, at the ripe young age of 86. As feisty as she was and still is (has to be the Russian blood in her!), she never gave up in her quest to make sure that I had the best and most normal life when I was growing up. But at the same time, rushing from doctor to doctor, clinic to clinic, hospital to hospital, retreat to retreat to make sure that I was getting the best of anything in dealing with my hearing loss. There is not one single moment that stands out (other than chasing me into a tree and knocking me out cold for misbehaving when I was oooooooohhhh….hhhmmmm…..12, I think) because each and every moment is a defining one in what shaped me into what I am today. For that, I love my mother ever so dearly!

So to my mother, wife and sister……and all those other mothers out there!
