Today isn’t just Thanksgiving, it’s also Hanukkah, holidays to many people around the world. It also happens to be my Mom’s Birthday. I want to wish my Mother a very happy birthday today. Mom is spending the day with family and she always gives so much of herself. She is currently caring for Aunt Julia who needs 24/7 care due to end stage kidney failure… and she took the time to make sure a shut in cousin who is a veteran, confined to a wheelchair had a special thanksgiving dinner brought to him. My mother is such a giving, special person that I wanted to take a moment to honor her and wish her the best. I only wish I could afford to give her a nice vacation to a resort somewhere so that she could be pampered a little herself. Mom, I love you… happy Birthday.
