Happy Birthday, Mom!

Mom turned 79 this year! She is truly one of the sweetest people on the face of the Earth. Most of the time she is lost in a world where no one else can go...she has Alzheimer's Disease.

I miss the times I could pick up the phone and call her and ask about a recipe or how she used to sew certain things. She could do anything. She really could. She made all the curtains in our home, she cooked the best food, she sewed all kinds of precious clothing for me and my 2 older sisters, she made suits for my father and the list goes on and on.

The thing I am most thankful for right now though is that she still remembers who I am. There is nothing sweeter than hearing her say my name when I call or go to see her.

Her sweet voice is music to my ears!
