Yep. This great lady is now 66.
In honor of her birthday I would like to share with you a little about her.
She's a terrific mom, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt, greataunt, daughter in law, sister in law, mother in law...you get the point.
She's also a caring friend, a practicing Christian, a non-practicing republican (I think), an intellect, an avid reader, a profound baker, and an amazing knitter.
She's also a teacher. In my life she's taught me a few things, like to walk and talk, swim and read. She taught me to be kind and work hard and be nice to other people and help out whenever you can. She taught me to balance mathematical and chemical equations (one of which I still can do because it's helpful in knitting). She taught me, if not to BE patient, that there are people in the world who are very very patient.
Above all these little things, she's taught me and many many others...the joy of ice cream.
She's a very good teacher.
Happy Birthday, Mom.
