She’d Have Been 87

Today’s Mom’s birthday. Or, rather, it would have been her birthday.

It’s a bittersweet day.

I’ve been thinking about her a lot, naturally. How lucky was I to have a mother who inspired and encouraged me throughout my life? She loved all us kids and never let us forget it! She protected us from some of the more awful things in life while trying to guide us through the scariest parts with love and gentle care.

I wish I could give Mom a great big hug right now and take her a homemade cake. But, since I can’t, here’s a song that makes me think of her:

I miss you, Mom! Happy birthday up there! I hope you’re having a marathon card game and laughing yourself silly. I love you!


  1. Happy Belated Birthday to your Mom!

  2. I wish I could have had another birthday with her. I think about her all the time and wish I could talk with her again. Ah, well…now I can babble away without interruption. Honestly though, I’d rather be interrupted.
