I was inspired by two other slicers who wrote to imagine what their mothers might be doing today.
And another: Jaana writes
My mother would be sitting at the kitchen table sipping her morning coffee.
My mother would be talking with her mom, checking on her.
My mother would be planning her day, it might involve cleaning a part of the house, reading, running an errand for dad, sewing clothes for us, or for my sisters’ Barbie dolls.
My mother would be preparing the noon meal to simmer so everyone would have a hot meal when they came in from working in the field.
In the evening, my mother would be unwrapping her birthday gifts from her children and celebrating another year with her family.
