My Mom would have been 101 today. There are some days that the pain of missing my parents is profound … today is such a day. What I miss most about them is having the opportunity to share my life with them. So much has happened in the past ten years since my Mom passed (and the past 17 years since my Dad passed) and I don’t get to share any of it with them. And, the older I get, and the wiser (I think) I get, the more I am aware of how profoundly they have influenced my life and how much of what I do is an effort to thank them. So, Mom, Happy Birthday. This day is for you!
