Happy 23rd Birthday, Mom!

Gone, But Not Forgotten!

Today would have been my mother’s 23rd Birthday.

I will never know if she believed it – or if she thought that WE believed it, but whenever anyone would ask Mom her age, invariably, her answer was “23.”

It did not help when we pointed-out (on her 23rd birthday one year) that our elder sister was only 5 years younger than she was – because still she persisted. Yes, Mom lived in that special world where she was always exactly 23-years-old. Happy 23rd Birthday, Mom!

Wherever you are today, I hope that you’re staying young at heart!
