Mary Tyler Moore

Saturday nights.

I was a single mom living with two other adults. After weeks, crammed too full of work and life, there was a joy in staying home.

Mary Tyler Moore, Bob Newhart and Carol Burnett on the TV and if we weren't too tired Yahtzee and the Golden Oldies on the radio.

We were trying to break thru glass ceilings and find meaningful, interesting work. We had doors closed to us because we were women, and here was this woman "who could turn the world on with her smile." 

The line "you are going to make it after all" gave us hope. We were going to make it.

And we did.

Thank you Mary.
