#ThrowbackThursday Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today would have been my mom’s 89th birthday. Unfortunately, I lost her when she had just turned 55 to lung cancer. If you smoke, please please stop so you can have lots more time with your family. It’s hard to imagine, but my mom has now been gone from my life more than she was in it. She was my best friend, a role model, and a mentor. I miss her every day of my life. Today’s Throwback Thursday is my lovely mom, who will be forever young.
