It’s my mom’s birthday today. She told me how old she was yesterday when I called her for Mother’s Day. I told her she was really old (just kidding, by the way, Mom). Her response was great – “I don’t feel old!” I love that about my mom. Yes, the wrinkles are there and the gray hair as well (if you wouldn’t keep dying it), but you’ve earned each and every wrinkle and each and every gray hair. I think you should wear them proudly. Your spirit is young and always has been. You’ve gone through a lot of struggles over the years, taken the hard path instead of the easy one. I thank you for that. Happy Birthday – Love you!!
