Happy Birthday Mom!

It is so hard for me to believe that my mom is 80 years old. Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday I was a little girl and she would sing to me. I can just about hear her singing "oh the moon shines tonight on little redwing", she would sing it to me when I was in the bathtub, so she could get my hair rinsed good after washing. I'll never forget the calming effect it had on me.

We had pizza, cake and ice cream for her birthday. She wasn't feeling well....she broke 4 ribs when she fell last week, and just came home from the hospital yesterday. She's weak and frail, and we are hoping this will pass once she has time to heal. I'm thankful to be able to celebrate another of her birthdays with her.

I love you mom :)
