My mom would have been 81 years old, today. It still causes great, big alligator tears to roll down my cheeks when I type about my mom in the past tense. She would have been. She should have been. It still doesn't seem real, even almost 2 1/2 years later.
I miss her.
Oh, how I miss her.
Happy Birthday, Mom. With all my heart, I love you and am so glad to have had you as a mom and as a friend.
With love from The Valley of the Sun.
