As you can see from this picture taken a couple of days ago, after another Arctic blast dropped temps to the mid-teens, my mom is a champ!
Even with all the ice, sleet, hail, wind and cold Old Man Winter has thrown our way, mom has never missed a day at Circle Center Adult Day Services (except the days they’ve had to wave the white flag)!
And, like she taught my sister and me, she has never complained … not one little bit.
In full disclosure, I have missed a few snow days this season myself. It’s been pretty brutal.
Since I don’t believe Old Man Winter knows who he’s up against, I am sharing my open letter to him as a bit of a Winter Warning.
Old Man Winter,
Counting this one, my mom has faced off with you for 95 seasons that have shared your signature.
As you can see by her smile, you haven’t frozen her out of competing head to head with you yet … and you never will.
In fact, both of us laugh in your face!
You hear what I say, Old Man?
We laugh in your face!
Between Spring, mom and me, we will kick your ice!
Enough is enough,
Tom & Mom
