Today is my mom's birthday. Even though she is not here to celebrate with us anymore I will still mark this day as a celebration of her life. I think because she endured so much during her life, she always looked forward to happy occassions and any reason to have a celebration. So today I will go to the cemetary, bring her flowers and remember the wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt,daughter and friend that she was.
Shawn took this picture of my mom when we went on a family cruise a couple of years ago. This stop was in St. Thomas. I love this picture because of the sheer joy and happiness that's glowing on her face. I am going to take this picture and put it on a tshirt when I do the Ride for Heart, this way she will be with me.
Te quiero mucho mama, feliz cumpleanos.
