Today is my mom's birthday.
She was born in 1945. A lot of things happened in 1945....
In the Fall of that year my mom made her appearance. She was the fifth child....Ruth Marie. Her parents would later add two more children to the family, after my mom, for a grand total of seven. Two boys, five girls.
A great many things have happened since that day in October, sixty-five years ago.
Some not so good.
All, a part of life.
Happy Birthday Mom.
This is your day.
A day to celebrate you.
