This past Wednesday Cinco De Mayo to be exact my Marissa (great grand-daughter) celebrated her ninth birthday in New York. I requested a piece of her ice-cream Carvel cake to be saved in the freezer for my future visit. Marissa promised she would, but I have a feeling someone will be helping themselves to it. On Friday, my baby brother Frank turned 68 and I sang Happy Birthday to him via cell phone to his office. It is maddening to think how fast the years have passed but blessed to still tease him as I did when we shared a room many moons ago…..Also on this day , my sister Gloria and Tommy celebrated their fifty fifth wedding anniversary. She claims they are as much in love today as they were then. How special is that?
Tomorrow, I will be treated along with all the other wonderful Mothers in the world to perhaps flowers–candy-hand made cards (those are still the best) and lots of hugs and kisses all for just being a Mom and loving every minute of it. For me there is no question in my mind how much I love being a Mom and I miss the days when it was hectic and noisy and wondering would I survive another day raising my three sons? But I did, and I am a better person for it and so very proud of all three. The rewards have been endless and the love priceless.
To all of you wonderful Mom’s from Ms Millie- Happy Mothers Day!
