Today, I am grateful for my Mom
Not only because it’s her birthday –
the fourth birthday since she left earth
but also because I had the privilege
Of being her daughter,
receiving her unconditional love
for more than 55 years.
She told such good stories.
She loved to laugh.
She could look through the facade
to see the brutal truth
and smack me over the head with it.
Her cooking was legendary-
just ask my children…
She was a good friend,
a loving wife,
and a spectacular mother.
Everyone who knew her loved her.
Happy Birthday Mom!
I miss you!
