Birthday Thoughts

This is an ancestor nicho I made a while back. It features my mother's high school graduation photo from 1939. She was born on 5/15/1922 and gave birth to me 38 years later on 5/15/1960.

That makes me 51 today, and my mom would have been 89. She passed away on December 17, 2003.

Every year on our birthday, the first thing either of us thought to do was wish the other a happy birthday.

"Happy birthday, Mom," I would say to her.

"Happy birthday, Baby," she would reply.

I miss you, Mom. Happy birthday.

  1. I love those little traditions we have with our parents or our children. The Bug and I have some and when we forget I feel thoroughly off base and incomplete. It's bittersweet to have to share her birthday but what an amazing memory to hold with you of how special you each shared that day together. *Big squishy squeezy hugs from me and the Bug*
