Mom turns 80 today – which frankly seems hard to believe based on her active lifestyle and good health. Mom has been a solid influence on my life and for many of my growing up years seemed to be the one who taught me so many of life’s basic skills and principles.
I have written before about how in those early years with just the two of us and Dad off travelling so much we enjoyed each other’s company and we shared many special routines.
But it is more than just the past that Mom has shone. She remains today a good influence on our lives and prayers for us each day. She has remained strong after Dad was taken from us and is a significant person in her corps.
Happy birthday Mom – we love and appreciate you every day!
