Happy 72nd Birthday Gladys

Today would have been my mom, Gladys 72nd birthday.  She died before her 71st birthday last year. In, October 2011, I invited a few friends over to celebrate Gladys’ life and memory. I knew I needed the support of friends and family to get through not being able to celebrate with my mom.

In October 2010 when she turned 70, mom had a very nice birthday celebration. Many  people attended. Everyone got to tell Gladys how much she was loved.

Although, mom had dementia and forgot many things, she never forgot that party. She talked about how
much she enjoyed the party almost everyday until she died.

Gladys loved birthday celebrations. She especially liked eating ice cream & cake and receiving gifts. I am thankful I have so many wonderful memories of that last birthday we spent together.

I didn’t have any ice cream and cake today. But I am very appreciative to God for giving me such a wonderful mother.
