Happy 75th Birthday to my Mother.

Technically Momma turns 75 tomorrow, but we’re celebrating a day early because it’s the one day everyone has off and can gather at her place. I can never put into words just how lucky I was to have her for a mother. Especially compared to some of my friend’s mothers or just some of the ones you read about in the newspaper. She taught me well over the years and has always been there to lend an ear when I was troubled, and often times more than that when a car needed fixin’ or an unexpected emergency put us in a bind. She often went without so that us kids had what we needed. She is the reason I do not have a troubled past checkered with various criminal offenses.

So a very happy birthday to my mother, without whom I wouldn’t be here today (quite literally). I hope she has many more yet to come. If you’d like to give her some well wishes you can do so here or on her blog.

  2. Next month it will be 71 down and 4 to go. Sadly, none of my children have done as much for the Blogoshpere as yours, but they are carving out their own nitches in life. I hope each learns the lessons of Ebert (see other post, How to Live).


  3. Have a very Happy Birthday-you so deserve it-and by the way your son wrote, I can tell you taught him well! God Bless
