Yesterday was a bit of a bittersweet day.  It was great because I had a wonderful meeting with some amazing people from Outward Bound Omaha who I can see working with in the near future.  It was a challenging day because it was also my Mom’s birthday.

So, I did what I could to make it a special day when the person you love is no longer around to celebrate. I called Dad to see how he was doing.  He definitely did not sound like himself.  I communicated with my sister, who remembered so many great things about Mom.  And, I bought a chocolate cake and put four candles on it (one for each of the people in my little family), sang “Happy Birthday” to Mom and asked everyone to make a wish as they blew out their candles.  Memorial birthdays are not fun but are a good reason for all who loved her to remember her and lean on one another.

Happy Birthday Mom!
