Happy Birthday, Mama!

My beautiful Mama would've been celebrating 86 years today.  It's a time to reflect on how much she meant to me, what an amazing Mom she was (I so appreciate that now more than ever) and how much I miss her.

How lucky am I that she chose me that fateful day in July 1969? I was only one month old and told (via my non-id info) it was love at first sight.  Although the search for my birthmom continues, she is my "real" mom.  Period.

If there is cake in Heaven (and there must be, right??), I hope Mama is enjoying an extra slice and celebrating with family and friends.

I love you!

Melissa, I think two things. Firstly, I think there is all sorts of amazing cake in Heaven and other things more delicious than cake that it is beyond our capacity to imagine!
The second thing I think, is that your mama looks like Judy Garland.
I also know somethings.
I know your mother must've been amazing coz she has raised one helluva daughter.

Big hug to you and I think you deserve some cake too. :-)

My Gran (My dad's adopted mom) is and always will be thought of the same way...his "real" mom and my "real" grandmom.
