A Holiday of Sorts

Today is my mom's birthday. Had she lived past January 2000, she would have turned 65 today. This image doesn't match how she looks in my mind's eye, where she still makes daily appearances, but how she looked the last time I saw her in person, just a few months after my son was born.

She didn't teach me everything I know, but she taught me more than enough. Happy birthday, mom.

Happy Birthday to your beautiful mom.

She didn't teach me everything I know, but, I now know she knew more than I thought she knew at the time. She's amazingly smarter as I get older. Happy 64th mom.

Love you -
