Hear me roar

MSU News - June 3, 2015 - 12:53pm
I celebrated my birthday a couple of days ago. By anyone's standards, it really was a lovely day - I was given presents, cards and delicious treats. I was taken to lunch and spent the evening drinking wine and watching some hilariously trashy television with a group of wonderful friends. Family members called and my Facebook page was filled with good wishes. My daughter sent me a beautiful video of her singing a song that would make anyone tear up. And yet, there was still something missing - a birthday wish from my mom. It was something I could always count on. My mom was the one other person there for that very first birthday of mine so many years ago and she never missed one. I had no idea when I celebrated my birthday six years ago that a mere 12 days later I would be saying goodbye to her. She was there for my first breath and I was with her for her last. I miss her all the time, but my birthday is one of the worst days - and her birthday, which was just four days before mine. Of course Mother's Day is just a few weeks before that. It can be a difficult time of year. She was an amazing woman. She was one of the kindest people I've ever met. She never forgot a birthday, anniversary or other important occasion for all her friends and extended family. She was smart, funny and a wonderful cook. She loved my dad, her children, her grandchildren and all of her family fiercely.
