Today would have been my Mom's 73rd birthday....
I wonder what she would look like...
Would she have aged gracefully?
Would she finally have the salt and pepper hair she so desperately wanted?
Would she still have the contagious smile and still be one of the nicest & kindest persons one could ever know?
Would she be a "fly" senior citizen?
Would she still enjoy sneaking away to Atlantic City to play the slots?
Would she still be afraid of heights, therefore afraid of flying, or would she be jet setting around the world with Miss Higgi?
Would she still love to garden and take much pride in a lovely yard?
On a cold, snowy night would she still open the curtains, pour a glass of wine, light a candle and watch the snow fall while relaxing and listening to some good background music?
Would she have found happiness and love?
Would she still talk incessantly and proudly about her children and now her grandchildren to anyone who would listen?
Happy Birthday Mommy. I miss you so...
Please listen to this song; Eric Clapton, Tears In Heaven. It is so lovely and so meaningful to anyone who has lost someone..
