Thank you!!

...for all of your wonderful birthday wishes yesterday! I feel so very loved!

Today would have been my Mom's birthday. I've been looking at old pictures this morning. I found this one of us from my wedding day (1993) and couldn't help but laugh!

If she were still here, I'd email this to her and say "What were we thinking? Our hair was huge!!" And she would laugh so hard and say, "I know, right!" Oh how I miss her laugh. I used to call her everyday just to hear it!

Happy Birthday, Mum. I hope they have a giant sized cannoli with a candle in it and a 72 ounce iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts up in heaven for you today!

Have a beautiful Sunday, my friends. And if you can, call your mom and make her laugh... for me.

Love to you,

I'm so sorry that I missed this post. I forgot about your mom's birthday. What a great picture. I really love it. It's funny...I have always felt like your mom and I had met. That you and I have been friends forever. I miss your mom too...I miss her for you. How has her garden back by the bench grown since I have been gone?
Whoever did that Mom post...Wow, made me cry. Thanks for doing that for my bfff.
It makes me think of Elaine too. You know she lost her mom a few years ago. I have to go call my mom and tell her that I love her...
