Happy Birthday, Mom

I took this picture, along with about 150 others, last summer when we went to Minnesota to help my parents get their house ready for sale. It was somewhat hard to keep the kids busy during this long two week trip, but I cherish the lasting memories I have of that extended visit with my mom while she was still very coherent and fairly "healthy."

I'm not one to feel very sentimental about anniversaries of things, but I do feel like February 18th will always be a significant date in my life. A friend described it well. She said it was "present" therefore I feel it. I'm not sure what to think about it. I do know that I've been extra tearful for days. I'm looking forward to not being so sad about this.
