The Golden Years

We cheered Mom tonight as she endured a day full of balloons, cards, smiles, kisses, and happy birthday wishes.   Although she needed many reminders about what this day was,  she remained graceful and grateful which was evident by her smile when she saw her kids, the kindness she showed her baby doll, and they way she pet her new cat.

She turned 81 today.

And I’m certain she believes she’s still living the idea of the Golden Years.

    Hi Diane,
    A very special celebration. I’m down here with Mom and Dad for Easter. They return to New York on the 10th and will be up to see Ann after they return. Our love to all.
