Let me start off with saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! I love you!
Birthdays can really be a mixed bag of emotions. We can’t wait for them to happen when we are kids…Sweet 16…Legal age of 21…You’re considered a real adult at 25…After that, they’re hit or miss.
My favorite birthday was the last one I spent with my grandmother before she died. We all went to Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville. She had cancer at the time although she didn't know it until a few months later. You never would have known she was sick and when I think back to how far she had to walk from the car to the restaurant, I don’t know how she did it. She enjoyed the ambiance as much as I did, and she was determined to have fun that day…giant margarita blender, beach music and all. It was a day I'll never forget.
I would love to hear about your favorite birthday.
