Yes, 37 years ago, my Mom gave birth to me on June 11th. Ever since I lost my Mom, my feelings on birthdays has changed. I feel the mom of the birthday child/person should be getting roses since she, after all, endured pain and labor to deliver said person into the world. So, Mom, wherever you are, Happy Labor Day!!
I am having dinner with some friends tonight. My husband and I will go out tomorrow night. I opened up my presents last night. My girls made me sweet cards and thoughtfully wrapped up some of their jewelry to give to me. My husband got me a dozen pink roses and 2 very cute shirts from Banana Republic. Life is good.
