Living a good distance from my family means we don’t get to share in as many special occasions as we’d like to. We miss holidays and birthdays and many other special occasions. Today is another that we are missing–my mom’s birthday. Although we talk frequently, it’s still not the same as being together.
So, Mom. Today we celebrated you without you, but in a way that would bring you loads of joy…we sang “Happy Birthday,” blew out the candles, and ate brownies!
