Today my mom is 79 years old! She lives in San Antonio, Texas and is currently celebrating her birthday with my dad, sister and nieces and nephew. She has enjoyed a great day watching her grandson’s tennis tournament, going out to dinner, opening presents and eating cake! We haven’t been able to talk yet due to her celebratory activities, so Slice of Life friends, here is what I would say to her…
Dear Pretty Jo,
All day I have been thinking about you! Memories have ebbed and flowed from my mind. More than snapshots of family events though, I have been thinking about our relationship. It certainly has changed since my turbulent teenage years and the list of characteristics that I despised in my youth are the very traits that I admire most in you and try to emulate myself. Thank you for your prayers, generosity, support and being my biggest fan. I wish I could have celebrated with you today but I look forward to seeing you during spring break.
