Day Fifty – November 19, 2010

Looking back 10 years ago today…

I created this apple cake for my Mom’s Birthday. I love that I will always have this apple cake to honor my Mom and her very large part of the apple year.

Today, we celebrated Mom’s 76th birthday. So much on my mind about my Mom… but sometimes the words don’t come and sometimes things aren’t ready to be shared. Until that time, I just want to share how we celebrated her today. My younger brother Jason, my Dad Bill, and I took Mom to lunch today and we spent 2 hours straight laughing – it was a good thing the restaurant was virtually empty because we couldn’t contain ourselves.

Last year for Mom’s 75th (pre-covid) Birthday we had a huge party but this year was just as special in a very different way – our small pod – celebrating a woman who needs to be honored for her steadfast strength, integrity, deep love of her family and friends, and her selflessness. What an example for all ~ I am so blessed she’s my Mom.
