Today is my mom's 65th birthday! She may never see this post (she doesn't realize yet that I'm blogging again)...but I want you all to help me celebrate with her!
I've been blessed to have this lovely lady as my mom! She's the reason I'm so fabulous...hahaha! No, really. Mom was a public elementary school teacher for 30+ years and a large part of my love of the written word, my respect for animals (fine... obsession with dogs!), the joy I find in travel and my moral compass whether I needed one or not.
Here's mom, with her older sister Janice, when she was about 9-10 months old.
And here's my mom on her recent cruise to Alaska.
Mom, I love you and I'm so proud of the strength you've shown through some very trying times in the past few years. I hope this is your best year yet!
