Happy 70th Birthday Mom!

Today my beautiful mother should have turned 70 years old. I would have called her today and wished her a Happy Birthday, she would have taken us all out to dinner and treated us because that is what she loved to do. It was her birthday tradition~ Over the coming weekend my mom, sister and I would have met for lunch at one of her favorite restaurants and had massages. We would have told stories and laughed a lot and maybe even cried a little. It is so hard for me knowing that we will no longer be able to do these things.
What we will do instead is get together for dinner to celebrate her life. We will celebrate her birthday because she would want us to be together. She would want us to be happy and remember her. She would want us to continue to celebrate her life and our own. We will silently miss her tomorrow like we do every single day.

Today and always we celebrate you mom. And the incredible and amazing person that you have always been. We will celebrate how lucky we have been in this lifetime to be your children and grandchildren. We will celebrate how lucky we are to have you as our mother.
I love you and miss you as much today as the first moment you left.

This day and always....
I love you mom!
