Happy Birthday Mom

*this is a repost from 2009.

Today is my Mother's birthday. She would have been 76 if...........
I remember many things about my Mom.

The Mom who baked things for school.
The Mom who made the best Clam Chowder on rainy winter days.
The Mom who painted.
The Mom who laughed.
The Mom who loved you no matter what.
The Mom who, as soon as Carlos and I moved in together, would introduce him as her son-in-law.
The Mom who was married to my Dad for over 50 years.
The Mom who was a Nurse.
The Mom who loved to travel.
The Mom who taught me to love books.

I love my Mom.
I miss my Mom.

What a lovely mom you had. And to be loved like that, what a lucky guy you were.
