Today is my Mom's 84th Birthday.... My sister, my husband and I and all the kids took her to ice cream at a local family ice cream shop to celebrate, and I gave her a copy of The Priests CD. She was surprised and happy. I remember going to daily Mass when it was Mom's 75th birthday, and when it was time for the prayer intentions, I asked for prayers for my mom on her 75th birthday... The lady sitting behind me was the mom of an old school time friend of mine and she tapped my shoulder and whispered that I shouldn't have "announced" my mother's age... but mom was sitting just a couple of rows ahead of me and she didn't seem to mind... After all, no one ever believes her age... In fact, in my humble opinion, if you looked up "Aging Gracefully" in the dictionary, you'd see a picture of Mom.... So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!! You look mauhvalous! : ) I hope your day is happy and grace filled! You deserve it! I love you MUCH!
