Happy Birthday Month!

My mom turns 71 on August 13th. No one loves her birthday more than my mother! She celebrates the whole month.

Who am I kidding? Mom knows how to celebrate every day. Just this morning, I called her and she's having fun playing with her grandchildren who had a sleepover last night. Mom has a child-like spirit. Maybe that came from her years as a first-grade teacher. I loved visiting her classroom and seeing her read aloud to her students or work with them on their writing. 
Reading with her grandchildren.
Happy Birthday Month, Mom!
