Today would have been my mom's 71st birthday. We usually went to lunch on her birthday...she was incredibly difficult to buy presents for though. She pretty much bought herself what she wanted when she wanted it. We basically gave up trying to get the present thing right. And my dad learned to just have her pick out whatever it was that she wanted...surprises didn't work! All she really wanted from us was our time. She lived to "make memories" with us and our kids. I still think about her and miss her every day.
The Brain: Are you pondering what I'm pondering? Pinky: I think so Brain, but burlap chafes me so.
Quote of the Day
"Faith in something greater than ourselves enables us to do what we have said we'll do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems overwhelming and the course is entirely uncertain." -Gordon B. Hinckley
