My mother turned 88 today.
We celebrated with a party at her assisted living home.
A church choir sang “happy birthday” and hymns.
She had a “Happy Birthday” helium balloon attached to her wheelchair.
She wore a Harley-Davidson cap and a Harley scarf. Amy and I gave her a bottle of Chantilly perfume — the brand my father always gave her until he died in an industrial accident eight months after I was born.
Happy Birthday mom. Every one that we can still celebrate with you is so very, very special.
