Here is a pioneer woman who is representative of any mother in modern times. Is there a mother who has not experienced that soft hand on her cheek demanding her attention when it is elsewhere? This young pioneer mother has been picking apples with her child. Her attentions to her labors have been distracted by the arrival of a long awaited letter. She rests momentarily with her little one on her knee to read, all the while being coaxed to give attention to her child. Her subtle smile reveals her understanding patience. The sculpture tells this story. God bless you, dear mothers!
