Yesterday was Mom’s Birthday……76. It seemed to take forever to get home from work…..FOREVER. So, I was finally able to get a call off to her, as she is 3 hours ahead on the east coast. Mom is the last member of the elder generation of my family. I realized that concept last year when my Father died after a brief but horrible battle with Pancreatic Cancer. It is amazing, the thought process that transpires during the aging process. I am glad mom is still here and in great health. Happiest Birthday, Mom…and many more!
