Happy Birthday, Mom!
Children's children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.
Even though the photo above is taken eight years ago, my mother, Nancy, looks very much the same now as she did then. (Regrettably, I don't think I inherited those genes!) We are blessed that Mom's health is exceptionally good - she still drives, does her own shopping, and makes homemade bread that's to die for! Her only age-related ailment is hearing loss, but the hearing aids, though far from perfect, do help. All things considered, it's hard to believe she will be turning 90 on July 28th!
We will be celebrating Mom's birthday at her home on that day. She will be surrounded by children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who all love her. I do wish, though, that my Dad, Bill, was still here to mark this milestone with us.
That being said, I will not be blogging next week. I will be driving to Oxford mid-week to help my brother plan for Saturday's festivities. And as usual when in the land of unreliable internet, I won't be making my regular rounds to all my blogging buddies.
But hang in there! I'll be back soon, hopefully with a passel of family photos and sweet, precious memories to share with you.
Until then, may God bless and keep you in His love and grace.
