Today is my birthday. Birthday’s have always been quietly celebrated in my family. There were too many of us to get large or numerous gifts, so the day was made special in other ways. Mom made the cake or pie of your choice. As we grew up and left home, we sent cards and made phone calls to each other.I won’t get my phone call or card from my mom this year. This makes me sadder than I’d like to admit.
I do have a coupon for a free serving of ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery. I plan on stopping by on my way home today as I try to celebrate today rather than grieve.
