In about 30 minutes, it will be my Mom's birthday. She died on May 7, 2007. I'm sad that I can't give her a gift or call her. When she was alive, her Birthday greetings and gifts were all a little late. Now that she's gone, I plan her birthday for weeks in advance. She was an amazing woman and she touched a lot of lives. I guess what I'm trying to say is: Love and care for everyone like this is their last moment. It sounds cliche, but let them know how great they are. I wish I could have told my Mom more often. Now I just have to honor her in the way I live my life and raise my daughter. I love her so much. Happy Birthday Mom.
