Today is my Mom's birthday.
Even though she is no longer with us, I always feel the urge to celebrate her in some way. A bright colored assortment of autumn flowers, wearing a special token piece of her jewelry, going to Applebee's for lunch and ordering a special birthday dessert...
I just realized that my mom shares a birthday with Chuck Berry, Zac Efron, Erin Moran (Joanie from Happy Days/Joanie Loves Chachi fame) and Pam Dawber from Mork and Mindy.
Happy Birthday Mom, you're in good company.
