Birthdays Are Exhausting

Last Friday we celebrated a birthday...

good food...

a great cake...

a little visiting...
hardly any sibling squabbling!

Mom turned 83!

She was well behaved
(no dancing on the tables),
we didn't keep her out too late,
and she didn't over-indulge
on cake or anything!!

So why am I dropping her off at the hospital
on Monday??

I think she over-indulged on excitement 

A couple days of rest, saline, and anti-biotics
in her blood and she's good as new
(well, as an 83 year old)

So, Happy Birthday Again Mom!
Hope you can slow down, relax,
and enjoy many more years!
p.s. "drink your water!"

That is sweet. Mother's are so special. My Mom is around that age too and we cherish every moment with her since we lost my Dad in a car accident two years ago. We thank God continually that my Mom recovered from her injuries and is well and happy today.
