Happy 51st Birthday Mom!

When we celebrated Moms 50th Birthday last June, we weren’t sure if she’d see another one. A couple of weeks ago, things got scary… Mom was hospitalized with pneumonia and had a tracheotomy. She made it through this round, but everyday brings new worries. I often question if I would be able to hold on this long… she is strong and brave and she doesn’t want to leave her family. Someone asked me if Mom was continuing to hold on out of fear… that maybe she didn’t know where she is going after this life is over. I replied that wasn’t her reason… she isn’t afraid to die, she is afraid to leave us alone. Mom was released from the hospital on Friday, May 30th, just in time for my Sister Eden to graduate high school (the graduation was that night). Mom was determined to be there. This picture was taken the following Sunday, in my Grandparents back yard as we had a party to celebrate Eden’s graduation. Happy Birthday Mom! I love you and I admire your strength.

  1. One’s heart and determination can never be measured. She must be a very strong lady.
