I bought this card for myself in 1984. Back then Mary Engelbreit was a lot edgier. I've kept it all these years, finally framed it last year, and I set it out at Christmas time. I think this woman looks like a perfect mother. I've always kind of aspired to be this sort of mother. Vague, I know. I can't articulate why she's the one. But she is the archetype for me. I think they're going out to call the cows in for morning milking. Clearly. They are all wearing milking books.


  1. Not at all vague. Clear as crystal ringing out on a bitter cold joy-filled morning with beloved Mom. You ARE that kind of Mom.


  2. I think she looks like you. CC. :o)
