Happy Birthday, Mom!

Mom was born on Saturday, two days after Thanksgiving, 86 years ago. Her mother, having never experienced labor pains, thought the discomfort she felt was from turnips she’d eaten a few days before.

With her birthday falling so close to Thanksgiving, and with us all gathered at her house for the Thanksgiving meal, it’s been traditional to celebrate her birthday as part of our thanks giving.

What better time to celebrate her life and her legacy than on the day when we offer thanks for so much and for the many blessings so evident in our lives!

What a blessing Mom is to me, to my family – to her family and friends.

I love you, Mom.  Happy birthday!  Thank you for blessing me, not only with life, but with love and laughter and with the day to day living that means so much to me.

Thank you, God, for the blessing of my mother.

Happy birthday, Mom!
