THE NEW FORTY The role of a lifetime...
The role of "mother" has been the most important and rewarding undertaking I have experienced in my adult life; albeit, I didn't know at the outset how much is woven into the designation. Even having ... Posted on 5/12/13 at 9:19 AM
FARGO – An infant crawls around the dining room table where her mom is framing prints. An award-winning director washes baby bottles and laments an acting career that never was. Mothers with grown children come to terms with how their artistic endeavors affected their families.
FARGO - It took Kathy Johnson 30 years to pack away a tiny, tattered winter coat.
The little yellow coat with a bunny applique belonged to her daughter, Jessica Welle, and like the pages in her baby book, Jessica’s life stopped at 3½ months. She died of SIDs on Feb. 15, 1982.
You’d think as adults we’d know better. But why is it when it comes to communicating with younger generations we sometimes just plain blow it? When they’re little, it’s easy. Ask them their favorite color or how old they are and you can get a nice conversation going, sometimes peppered with wildly off-topic comments: “My friend Aidan’s grandpa wears an eyepatch, but he’s not a pirate.”
WASHINGTON – A record number of American women are now the sole or primary breadwinners in their families, a sign of the rising influence of working mothers, a new study finds. Mothers now keep finances afloat in 40 percent of households with children, up from just 11 percent in 1960.
FARGO -There may be a reason women say they crave chocolate around “that time of the month.”
Dietary iron may reduce the risk for premenstrual syndrome, according to a 10-year study of more than 3,000 women published online in The American Journal of Epidemiology.
FARGO - Beth Schaible was a young mother when she first faced the possibility of widowhood. Her husband, Calvin, was diagnosed with skin cancer in his 30s. Doctors gave him 50/50 odds, she says.
He survived, but the scare helped the Fargo couple stay connected and communicate about the “what ifs” in life, including their financial picture.
WEST FARGO - Carol Morken hopes she’s taught her three children to choose happiness, health and wisdom. It’s her mantra.
“It’s such a choice to say those things. I’m really not healthy, but yet I am,” she says.
I like to imagine my mother before I knew her, before she became a mom to my big sister and wife to my father.
I like to imagine her with long, straight hair, jeans hugging her ballerina legs, high heels clicking along the pavement and her tan, elegant arms that opened out wide to the world.
Dear Readers: Like most of us, I grew up hearing that it’s the little things that count. I’m becoming increasingly aware of the truth in the old adage. As I look back this Mother’s Day on my mom’s last year of life, I remember how important the smallest things became to her as time went by.
