Today is mom's birthday. She's doing really well- her health is excellent and she is enjoying her retirement. She is spending the week at my baby brother Gomez' house, a mere two hour drive from her place.
Mom's health and happiness are a testament to an active life, and an emphasis on opening her heart and her home to others. She looks twenty years younger than the age on her driver's license, and has enough energy to put to shame people half her age.
I'm convinced she'll outlast me... Happy birthday, mom!
