Happy Birthday Mom...

Today would have been Mom's 69th birthday...she left us suddenly and unexpectedly almost five years ago. I took my Dad out today for a ride to the cemetery. He is in an assisted living home about a mile from where I live. I visit him almost daily, try to take him out as often as I can and take care of all his affairs. So today, we put a fresh new bundle of crisp Fall flowers for her birthday.

She loved the Fall season, the cooler weather, the changing of the leaves. I think it was her favorite followed by the Spring season of a fresh new burst of color and flowers. She loved to watch the birds and loved to "play" in her flower garden that she tended to daily...she said it was "her therapy".

She was the love of Dad's life...

the love of my life & my best friend...

I miss her terribly.

Happy Birthday in Heaven Mom...I miss you!
