March 1st

Today is my mom's birthday-she would have been 85 today! She loved flowers so thought I would post the ones my neighbor gave me. My brother and I have been cahtting all day about how lucky we were to have a mom like her. She was the greatest mom a person could have!She is really missed. My one brother & sister had to grow up when she died!

There is no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval.
George Santayana (1863 - 1952), Soliloquies in England, 1922, "War Shrines"

Enjoy the interval!
