Today is mom's natal day. I called her last night to wish her a happy birthday because her plan was to hit the road around 8AM and drive to my brother Vincenzo's new house (he was transferred back to the 'States in June) to help him and his wife to unpack when the movers finally bring their possessions to their current home. Mom already has a bunch of activities planned with the grandkids, who have been eagerly anticipating her arrival.
Is there any better birthday present than spending time with a bunch of grandkids? I know mom's answer.
