Happy Mother’s Day! I grew up in an immigrant household and had many women raising me. I had two Baba’s, several “Aunts” or Tetas as we called them and of course my young Mom Vasa. She was a teenager when she married my Dad – 14 years her senior. She came to Canada in her early twenties, learned English and worked at Ford electronics fixing radios. She worked shift work and worked many many shifts to provide for her family which included my brother and I, and her motherĀ in law. She kept the house, did shopping, took care of us and of course worked very hard.

I don’t know how she did it but I am so happy that she did. Happy Mother’s Day Mom!!
