In my efforts to learn to read, my mother shared fully my ambition and sympathized with me and aided mien every way she could. If I have done anything in life worth attention, I feel sure that I inherited the disposition from my mother. - Booker T. Washington
The people across the road from us on the farm, had white faced cows and many spring and summer mornings, I would wake up with the curtains blowing in my bedroom, to the sound of the lowing of the cows across the street. Sweet memories! Daddy always pointed out the new babies in the herd! How sweet they were and fun to watch.
