Memory Monday-Happy Birthday, Mom

Memory Monday-It’s a thing…

This isn’t a typical Memory Monday. It’s a chance for me to wish my mom a very happy, happy, happy birthday.

My birthday was two days ago and Mom has always joked with me about not waiting two more days so our birthdays could be on the same day. Our birthdays are bittersweet for us. As if a winter birthday isn’t bad enough on its own, her birthday is also the anniversary of the day her mother (my grandmother) passed away. Granny passed in 1994 and it’s still difficult for both of us to fully, completely enjoy our birthdays.

I drafted what I thought was a nice piece on all the things I learned from my mother over the years. She asked me to stop posting stuff about her on the internet so I deleted it. I’ll just leave it at:

Happy Birthday, Mom. I love you.

  1. Boooooo! I object to her albeit perhaps humble censorship!
