Today is my mom's birthday.She is spending today in airports and airplanes and away from home. She is traveling with my dad to see my sister, Mindy, and her family in Thailand. I wish I could be with her. But we were able to celebrate with her on Sunday. Those of you that know her know that she is a very active, happy, caring, giving person. She has spent her life making people happy.She has recently experienced health problems that have required her to either be in the hospital or home in bed. But, as you can see, being in a hospital bed hasn't stopped her smile. She finds much joy in the arms of her 10 grandkids and they feel the same about her. Each of my kids has a special relationship with their Mimi. She makes every effort to make sure they know how much she loves them. Just a couple months ago as we were unloading the van at a restaurant to celebrate my dad's birthday, Abbie and Christian were both arguing over who would get to sit by Papa. BJ didn't join in this argument. His face lit up when he told me "I get to sit by Mimi!"I feel very blessed to be able to say that my mom is also my best friend. I call her very frequently just to chat. She and I are very much alike, and we have a great time together doing nothing but talking, laughing, and maybe enjoying an occasional trip to Target or Ikea. Mom, I love you. Thank you for being the person you are.
