Birthday Celebration for My Mom Today

24 Jun

Today we gathered with my mom for a birthday dinner in her honor.  We had some pretty fabulous Italian food.  My mom was so happy that I accused of being drunk :)

My parents have had some pretty significant losses of family and friends in the recent years.  My father told me he is one of only two living members left in his fraternity.  I get the sense that my mother really appreciated her birthday today and it’s a reminder really that every day is a gift.

But unfortunately my mom had about zero chance of blowing out her own birthday candle! :)

    Every year our children are dearer to us, especially as we lose the older members of our family.

    It was a great time and another reason why I’m so happy Mom and Dad are finally local … even with all the bridge traffic!
