Mother’s Day Commentary From Author Julene Bair

This Sunday is Mother’s Day.  For most of us, it’s a time to remember and honor the woman who gave us life and helped raise us.  Guest Commentator Julene Bair grew up in western Kansas as “Daddy’s Little Girl.”  But these days, she’s been thinking more and more about her mother.  As she explains in this essay, that wasn’t always the case.

Julene Bair is the author of One Degree West: Reflections of a Plains Daughter and  The Ogallala Road: A Story of Love, Family, and the Fight to Keep the Great Plains from Running Dry. Information about her and her work can be found at
