Happy Birthday Mom!

      Happy Birthday Mom!

You have been on my mind so much this week.  I usually have a week between your birthday and Mother's Day, but this time they are back to back...
I know in the sad moments of missing you that you are ever close to me, watching, smiling, knowing....loving.
Your last birthday with us, you were in your bed, I covered you with that pretty blanket, flowers on the table next to you.  You did your best to smile, a little twinkle in your distant growing eyes...
Of all the gifts I have given you through the years, the things that gather dust, break or wear out....the greatest gift I could give you in your final years, was to give you my life to care for you.  I did so.  I would do it again.  So Mom, on your 102 birthday, have a joyous celebration in heaven.!    Love you!
