Happy Birthday, Mom

Today is my Mom's birthday. She is 97 years old. I hope that I inherited those longevity genes. I know I inherited a lot of other things from her, for which I am very happy.

She lives in Chicago, a long way from me but we have webcams and can talk to each other with pictures and it's great. I wish I could be there today to celebrate. I used this picture to make a screen and printed us out onto fabric. She lives in a one room apartment in assisted living, so she doesn't have lots of room for more stuff, so I made this into a pillow. She can move it around and it won't take up much room, but every time she looks at it, she will think of me. How great is that?

So, Happy Birthday, Mom, and may you have many more!

How sweet! How blessed you are Cathy to still have your Mom on the planet, especially if she is in possession of her brain matter. Happy Birthday to Cathy's Mom!
