Good Better Best

These were my words at my Mothers funeral.  Thinking of you today Mom!
Happy Mother's Day to all you great Moms (and Mums)

Good, better, best, never let it rest; until your good is better, and your better best.  These are the words of exhortation drummed into Mom at an early age by some ancient grade school teacher.  Words she always remembered, and often repeated.

Mom passed away today October 25, 2010.

I often wondered what Mom would have become if she were raised in an age where women were not held back by corporate, educational and social limits.  For the most part her choices were to become a secretary, nurse, teacher, or a Mom.  She became a Mom.  She was a good Mom, better than most and the best she could be.

Mom never tried to have the “perfect” life, as some of us do.  She was not perfect; none of us are, but she always tried to be a perfect person as few of us do.

Good, better, best, never let it rest; until your good is better, and your better best.

You can rest now Mom. For a long time you have been the best.

We love you Mom, and we will always miss you!
