Happy Birthday, Mom
It's Mom's 84th birthday today. I've been blessed to have her in my life. She and my dad taught by example: working hard, setting high standards for themselves and for my brother and me, and treating people with kindness and respect I have her to thank for teaching me to read before I went to school, and kindling my love affair with books. She's still teaching me. Now the lessons are about growing old with grace and dignity. Long may you ride, Mom!
