My mother is 80 years old today! She is too busy to see all the birthday greetings she is racking up on Facebook. After she nudged me to make my move in our latest Words With Friends game this morning (she’ll beat me by a hundred points, as usual), I knew she was up early, and we called her, and she was having breakfast before rushing out, as usual, to work. She still works, a whole lot. She may never actually stop.
I wrote this tribute to her a while back, and I hope you’ll click through and read it (and watch the YouTube link), because I feel like I did a pretty good job of capturing her essence.
I love you, Mom. I couldn’t have made it this far without you on my team. May you live to 120!
