In honor of Mothers Day, what did your mother model for you?
My mom – Ruth Reed – modeled unconditional love. She never criticized my brother Dave, sister Cheri or me. She believed in us from the beginning and was our biggest supporter.
She helped put the light on in our eyes at an early age by giving us the freedom to head out and ride horses. Instead of cautioning us about what could go wrong and worrying about us, she and my dad trusted we could handle whatever came up.
That belief in our ability to figure things out evolved into a confidence, independence and trust in the world that has led to a life of SerenDestiny filled with adventure, love, joy and fulfillment.
She’s been gone now for thirty years – however her enduring influence is for life. Sending up heartfelt thanks, Mom.
