Today is my mother's 90th birthday. Though she does have some health issues, she is still living alone in her own home and is fairly active. (Picture taken June, 2009)
I was reading a blog the other day as to how much to say in your knitting blog. The debate was whether or not to include personal information regarding family, jobs, etc. I, for one, like getting to know some of my readers more as friends.
For instance, three blogging friends in particular, Alison, Deb and Sandy have wonderful mothers (living or deceased) in their lives. I read their stories with envy and am happy for them.
Enough said! Circumstances are what they are. I was fortunate to have a wonderful aunt in my life who made sure I had what I needed when I was growing up. She passed away in 1981.
So, being the dutiful daughter I sent my mother a gift card. She lives in Colorado. I do what I can from such a long distance. If I lived closer, I would take her out to dinner.
I hope she has a "Happy Birthday!".
