Today is the birthday of my mom. She is the unsung hero of the family. Growing up she did the laundry and kept us in line and all that.
She loves to make "pages" of pictures that we can put in albums to record our family history in a visual form, and she has amazing skills as a photo shopper. She can erase a person from a picture without a trace! All the more reason to stay on her good side! But she uses her powers for good, often editing out blinks and weird faces, moving people closer together, even adding people to pictures so their presence is recorded.
Totally devoted to family, she has an unending love of my father, of her kids and a devotion to her grand kids.
She's an amazing lady, and I'm glad she's my Mom.
Happy Birthday Mom!
