Today, I have nothing snarky to share. Go figure. Today, I have no mundane anecdote to share in the guise of furthering a larger, deeper conversation. Today, I have no pet peeves to rant and rave about.
Today, instead I present my tradition, where I thank my mother for giving birth to me on this day in May. She gave birth to a Taurus girl who has always been a chatterbox with a story to tell. Or so she always reminded me and encouraged me. She allowed me to be stubborn and to never back away from a just fight.
I wish she was still here so that she could leave me one of her silly happy birthday songs. But I have a feeling she is up there singing. And, I will keep that song in my step today.
And, here’s to hearing my little boy wishing me a happy birthday in his silly, goof-filled, chatterbox self.
Another year has come. Got to make it grand. Thanks to everyone for hanging with me.
