My Mom was a miracle worker. With little money she always managed to put clean clothes on me, take a few cans of food and make it seem like a feast, squeeze her budget so that she could buy me that thing I just had to have, be my nurse, teacher, counselor, cook, maid, and friend, and still greet the world with a smile. Others may have had more money than we did but no one had a better mother.
