My mother was an ordinary woman
who lived in extraordinary times

Born into vast richness
yet humble and tolerant

My mother was an ordinary woman
who raised two children

Torn apart from my father
by a world war

My mother was an ordinary woman
who was flexible and adaptable

Bending with the winds of change
yet grounded in her own strength

My mother was an ordinary woman
who imparted extraordinary values

Olwen Schubert
