Happy Birthday!

I just wanted to take this time to wish a Happy Birthday to my wonderful Mom! I’ll have to say it here since I can’t call her up and tell her. This is her first birthday that I’ll have without her since her passing a little over three months ago. She was born on January 31st in the year 1920! She lived a long and blessed life for almost 94 years. But I still miss her so much and today won’t be easy for me - nor for the rest of my family. I know that she’s at home with our Lord and they’ll be having cake and ice cream in Heaven but a little part of my heart is being selfish by wishing that she was here with me so I could hold her one more time and tell her how much I love and miss her and how much she means to me. So I’ll share her birthday with you, my friends, and close my eyes and my heart will talk to as it always does and I’ll tell her “Happy Birthday, Mom - I’ll always love you” and I know she will be right here with me, listening, with her arms wrapped around me, holding me while I cry.
