A common theme here on Green Grandma lately has revolved around moms; in particular, my mom. Moms work hard. Very hard. My mom was no exception. After my dad had two massive heart attacks when Mom was only 37, she gave up her role as a stay-at-home mom (a role she loved, by the way), and she headed back into the work force, determined to be able to provide for her three daughters in the case that the doctors were right and Dad would have five years, at the most, left to live. They were wrong, by the way, and he lasted through 11 more heart attacks until his 14th one killed him 18 years later.
Anyway, Mom worked hard. I was the youngest and learned by watching her, that it is important for moms to take care of themselves. Mom loved to arrange fresh flowers and she enjoyed long soaks in the tub. Most of all, however, she was a voracious reader. As she aged, she still arranged flowers from time to time, but she gave up her baths, as it was too difficult for her to get in and out of the tub. But she kept reading. And reading. And reading. That's how she pampered herself... she pampered her mind. And that kept her young and vibrant, even when her body started to fail her.
