Time to say "Happy Birthday" to a great lady, my Mother! Since ladies don't usually care to have their ages divulged, I won't do that; but will say that I hope she is having a fine birthday on the other side.
She was a wonderful Mother and role model. Also, she was a gifted teacher (she taught me in both second and third grades!). She was of course, a fine poet, and you can read here about the novel she wrote. She was also a woman strongly connected to all of her family.
So with a prayer that she cosmically gets these wishes:
Happy Birthday Mom - have a wonderful one!
