Happy Birthday Mom, I miss you.

Today is my dear Mother’s birthday. She passed away on April 10, 2009. It is so hard to believe it is already over two years since she left us.

Mom, not a day goes by where I don’t think of you, miss you, and love you. I know you are looking down on me and hope that you are enjoying your reunion with the other members of our family that have passed on.

Mom would have loved the earthquake drama from the big East coast quake of August 23, 2011. She would have said it was fitting it happened around her birthday. Mom never let us forget that Hurricane Andrew struck southern Florida and the Keys on her 50th birthday! She would have been glued to the TV for all the latest updates on the quake and calling us every hour to see if Adam, Sheryl, and I were alright.

Mom's birthdays were always special. No matter what you gave her:  a homemade gift or card, Jean Nate bath splash 10 years in a row, chocolate covered cherries, one of her favorite CD's, or Monet earrings year after year, she treated each gift as her most favorite. She made the us kids feel like the gifts were gave her were diamonds and gold.  Love her for that.
