Today is my mom’s 86th birthday. I took her to her exercise class this morning, and when she got there, everyone sang “Happy Birthday” to her. I brought a plate of cookies to celebrate. She took it easy the rest of the day and just did what she wanted. Starting at dinner time, she spent the next couple of hours talking with every family member who called – sons, daughters, sister, grandchildren and great-grandchildren all sending well wishes. At one point, we had 3 calls going on at the same time from all different states. She felt pretty special getting so much attention.
I Found God today in all my mom’s well wishers.
