Happy Birthday Momma

Today would have been my mom's 87th birthday.  There will be no gifts.  I am traveling home with Amanda and Susan from Michigan. We went to one of my mom's favorite places....Mackinac Island.  She loved this place and I can see why.  I wish I could have experienced it with her....just once....but...there are no regrets.  I know sometimes people who lose a loved one seem to stay frozen in time....I haven' mom has been gone for 4 years....but....I will say....there are still many times I would love to pick up the phone and call her.....just to talk.  Sometimes I wish there were phones in heaven.  Sigh!  I spoiled my mom....on her 60th birthday I took her to see Robert Goulet at TPAC in Nashville.  He was King Arthur in Camelot.  Many years before she had wanted to see him as Sir Lancelot New didn't I made arrangements for the second best thing to happen.  I even made arrangements for her to meet him afterwards. She was in seventh heaven.....and told me I never had to buy her another birthday gift EVER!  My mom suffered with that was a statement she would never remember....on her 70th birthday I arranged for her to fly in a of her bucket list things.  She had a ball.   I am glad she got to do those things....shortly after that...Alzheimer's took hold and my mom began to dwindle and gifts were not as exciting a they once were....if she even remembered there was a special occasion that warrented a gift.  Thanks for letting me ramble a bit and remember mom......I hate Alzheimers!
