Yesterday was my dear mother’s birthday. I spent the night Sunday so I could spend all day with my parents, since they both had the day off, and sisters. And like my dad would say, “It’s like olden times!” Sweet mama hasn’t aged a bit! She’s sweet, funny, wheezy, and crazy just like all of us girls she birthed. She’s an incredibly talented artist, an amazing cook, a serious baker, and a one-in-a-million mom. She raised us to be smart, goofy, hilarious, domestic women. Paired with my dad they made the best duo in the history of marriage. I see myself turning into her more and more every day. And I like it.
I love you, Ma! Here’s to a bajillion more years.
