Happy Birthday, Anniversary and Mother’s Day

Mom at Home. February 27, 2009.

As I mentioned yesterday, Betsy and I are leaving today for some time at the beach.  Although we are looking forward to some fun in the sun, we’re sorry to be gone this first week in May.  Today is Mom’s birthday, Tuesday is my parents’  anniversary and of course next Sunday is Mother’s Day.  Betsy and I celebrated with Mom and Dad last year, so this year my sister will be celebrating with them.  We’ll have a belated celebration after we get back from the beach.

Mom is 89 years young  today.  I know I’m slightly prejudiced, but she’s about the nicest person you could ever meet.  She’s a fairly small woman, but she did a great job of raising my brothers and sister.  She has a beautiful alto voice and sang in the church choir for many years.  For as long as I can remember people have commented on her bright smile.  She lost her sight about twenty years ago, but that didn’t slow her down much or cause her to lose that smile.

Mom and Dad. February 27, 2009.

Tuesday will be Mom and Dad’s 69th anniversary.  They got married on a Sunday after the regular church service at Mom’s church and shared a carton of milk as their wedding supper on their way to their new home.  Dad will be 97 in August, and it’s cute to see them holding hands as they walk along.

So Happy Birthday, Mom, and Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad.  Oh, and Happy Mother’s Day.
