Sixty in the City
























Today my mom celebrates 60 years of life! Six wonderful decades of living, learning, loving, sharing, crying, playing, doing, not doing, wishing, hoping, holding, releasing, praying, talking, screaming, whispering, hugging, shopping, paying, cooking, cleaning, letting go, moving on, gaining wisdom, losing baggage, earning respect, teaching others, setting goals, breaking boundaries, raising kids, training a husband, basking in the family she has built, reveling in life-long friendships!

I am so proud to be a part of her journey. I know her life is bigger than me, but she always made me feel like the only priority. And, now I sit between a wonderful mother and an angel of a daughter. How lucky can I be? I can only hope my life is as full of verbs as hers.....and to add a few to the list, we did plenty of eating and drinking to celebrate!
