My mother’s birthday

Grace Hawbaker, my mother, turned age 93 on May 14, 2013. She lives alone in her own home, which is located at the entrance of the family farm near Chambersburg. On May 13 we four children and our spouses had a dinner with mother at her home.


Here you see mother with us kids. For those who do not know our family, I am the one on the left, child number two of four.

And here is the table ready for dinner. We had her favorite springtime meal – sausage (turkey sausage this time), rhubarb knepp (soft dumplings), asparagus and lemon sponge pie.

The table

It was an evening of joy, memories and thanksgiving to God.
