Alive on this earth for 88 years. I cannot begin to fathom the changes mom witnessed over the years. From being a child of the depression to the information age. From living a simple life on a farm to instant everything.
Every year, I have asked mom what she would like for dinner and dessert on her special day. Last year she wanted steak, potatoes and a pie. This year she wanted barbecued chicken, potato salad and a white cake with lemon filling and whipped frosting.
My sister came for the day and her gift to mom was a mink stole and a tiara. Mom wore that stole all day, “Cause the stole keeps me warm.” She would have wore the tiara all day, but it gave her a headache.
I hope you had a great day mom. May you have many more healthy years.
