My Mom Has Her 98th Birthday

My Mom is now officially 98. Yesterday was her big day. Twenty-one people mostly family helped her celebrate her big day. We had at least two cakes and a lemon pie so everyone got a sweet treat. It is much better not to plan a big party as Mom gets too nervous, so we just kind of let the day happen. I didn’t even count how many well wishes she got on Facebook, but it was impressive. She is a matriarch with at least 40 offspring in several generations. Have a very happy year Mom. You are excused from doing dishes (she will still do dishes, we can’t stop her). Send some good wishes on the breeze for her.
