Happy Birthday Ma!

Though she passed long ago, today is my Mom's birthday. She would have been 76! The date is easy to remember as it falls 2 days before my own. The B&W photo shows a Christmas 56 years ago while my Dad was off in the army - I was a mere lad of 9 days old and she was 20 (can you imagine?)! The other photo was taken on my parent's 35th anniversary, shortly before her death. While she was taken from us much too young, at least all their kids (I've got 5 Sibs) were all old enough to have memories of growing up in a loving and nurturing household. Happy Birthday Mom!
