Happy Birthday Mom

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.

I really don't know what to say. I know this has been so difficult for you. You are doing a great job at keeping her memory alive!!!

Thanks Lilian...you're sweet. I HAVE to keep talking about her...Grace never met her and she was such an amazing woman :)

I met your Mother and remember her as a fun person. It is important to keep her memory alive or others might think you are like Topsy, "I just growed".
