On the Occasion of Eleanor's 81st Birthday

My mom, Eleanor, is 81 today.  Happy Birthday, Mom! 

I still think often of my grandmother's diaries, of what it must have been like to live in the 1920's, how hard life was, and how very different it was from the lives we live today.

If you find these diaries, even long after I posted them on this blog one day at a time for three years, I hope you, too, enjoy them and are reminded of how hard our ancestors worked for so little and how blessed we are with what we have today.
