My Mother's Birthday (A Year After Her Passing)

My mother would have been 87 years old today.  She passed away on May 1, 2011.  I've thought of her many times during this past year, more often in recent weeks as I've been dealing with changes in my health.  Mom had some difficult months physically as she neared the end of her life.  Her strong faith and readiness to leave this world made her passing easier for the loved ones she left behind.  I'm overflowing with fond memories of her this day.

In my mother's honor, my favorite cafe offered to make a coffee cake which reminded me of the one mom used to make.  So, with others who bought a slice at the cafe today, I'll be enjoying the cake with my afternoon coffee.  Happy Birthday, Mom!
