On Mother’s Day, I got a chance to see my mom’s old store in Chickasha, Oklahoma.
It was a store my father managed for a time and then quit. Then the divorce, then somehow my mom became the manager, trained by my dad.
My mom was the first female manager for the franchise and she put everything into it. She constantly won awards and raised profits at the store past any expectations. I grew up at the store pretty much because when I was young, I had to stay at the store with her as I was too young to be home alone, and walking to the store after school was how I got home.
The photo seen above is not my mom, it’s a waitress that worked for her. but it was striking to me to recently find this photo and see the differences in the store now.
