Surprise, Maybe

Not sure how surprised my son was, but if the happy look accompanied by his huge embrace and kiss was any indication, my presence made his day a happy one.  The weather cooperated with bright sunshine and a cooling breeze as we feasted on Italian Pennie Ala vodka, vegetable lasanga, veal marsala, garlic knots, salad, roasted veggies.  Dessert was a wonderful strawberry shortcake and a chocolate cake with the chocolate pudding filling he adores.  His grandchildren and children enjoyed watching the festivities along with this Mom who had tears in her eyes as we sang “Happy Birthday”.  I am thankful for the privilege of being a Mother all of these years.
